All you need is Cardstock, Crayons, Scissors and Glue (and 15 minutes) for this E.Z.P.Z. Buildable Mini-Project.
Each "Net" (the shape you get when you unfold a 3D object) is culturally relevant, and comes with interesting facts to read, consider, and share.
Little fingers take a couple tries but after that we have found that this is an independent mini-project the class enjoys doing on their own, while we meet one on one with your students.
