This resource is intended to help students understand the relationship between a net and a solid, offer a creative Valentine that students can give to others, and allow students to explore the relationship between vertices, edges, and faces.
You can use the nets which are already filled with different designs and/or the blank nets to have students decorate as desired. Once decorated, the nets can be laminated (if you choose) and then cut out by only cutting on the boundary lines of each net. The student will then fold on each internal line so that the three-dimensional solid can be made. Use tape to join all edges except one.
If you choose to have your students use this resource for creating Valentines for others, you can choose to fill the solid with candy or use the blank notes provided on page 3. Students can decide who they would like to give their Valentine to and complete the note to place inside of the solid before it is taped shut. Students will first decide if their note will “Share Love”, “Bring Joy”, “Give Hope”, or they can use the blank note. Students will write a message to the person that they will be giving the Valentine to with the written note. The note will be folded, as needed, to fit inside of the ornament and the final edge taped shut. Students can have one single solid as a Valentine or combine several of the solids together to make a larger Valentine. These Valentine solids can be hung from the classroom ceiling or wherever the teacher chooses to use them for decoration. The students can then take them to deliver to their selected person after they are no longer used to decorate the classroom.
If you choose to have students explore the relationship between vertices, edges, and faces, you can have them complete the table on Page 4 for each solid. They will need to explore the solids of others to find ones different from their own.
