### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Geometry is all about shapes and their properties and characteristics. Art also has many of its foundational skills rooted in shapes! So how cool to join these two into a fun way to learn, remember and use geometry.

Students will be encouraged to tap into their creative worlds and construct a mobile of their own chosen theme. Hang out with these cool worlds. From family groups, foods, types of animals, flying objects, etc. the possibilities are endless. These final products are a wonderful way to decorate your classroom or to showcase your student's abilities while learning and reinforcing the terms and properties of shapes such as edges, faces and vertices. Reviewing volume, area, and surface area are also addressed with a worksheet for the students to complete. A rubric is provided to highlight ways that you may elect to evaluate the work your students have completed.
Nets are two dimensional templates used to fold and create 3-D shapes. In this 21 page package, I am including templates for a cube, a square pyramid, a triangular prism, a rectangular prism, and a tetrahedron.
PHOTOS will demonstrate how to construct the mobile with possible suggestions on images. A checklist is provided to the students to allow them some independence in this project. A template picture will show what image should be visible on each face. A cereal box will be used to show students that nets are indeed something seen everyday in their own lives. Sit back and watch them go!
Common core standards dealing with surface area, volume and area are also listed for your convenience.
