Product Description

It’s easy to make a 3D paper cube with a template, but young elementary students often need to see a detailed example to assure their success. Students also need step-by-step guidance when first learning how to draw 3D forms. “Make and Draw Cubes” includes everything needed to teach students how to create and render cubes.

This downloadable zip includes everything a busy teacher needs to show students how to construct three-dimensional paper cubes and how to draw them. The “Make a Cube” lesson plan is a 2 page PDF file. It describes how to use the “3D Cube-How to Make a Cube” PowerPoint presentation, which is a comprehensive follow-along tutorial. There are 84 photographed slides in the “3D Cube-How to Make a Cube” presentation, complete with descriptive text. This tutorial makes it so the teacher doesn’t need to make an example ahead of time nor does the instructor need to do an in-class demonstration. This frees the teacher to interact with the students as much as possible. Additionally, the projection assures that all students can clearly see. The prepared demonstration is fantastic for educators who teach multiple sections of the same class. A paper cube template is included to print and copy. “Draw a Cube” is another 2 page PDF lesson plan. The “3D Cube-How to Draw a Cube” PowerPoint is 168 slides long. It begins by leading the students through warm up drawing exercises. First, the students will draw horizontal and vertical lines. Next, the students will practice making diagonal lines. They also practice making squares. The demonstration includes step-by-step directions for 4 cubes because the repetition helps students practice and recall.

These directions may seem like overkill, but many students struggle with assembling 3D paper forms, and even more students have a difficult time drawing geometrical forms. These detailed instructions dramatically increase the students’ abilities to successful assemble and depict cubes. Going at a slow pace also helps students think about the drawing process, which helps them recall the steps. These two lessons are so easy to teach that any educator could use them, and they can even be left with substitute teachers.
