Students create a samurai or knight using 3D shapes. Each group gets at least one cone (party hat), one cylinder (paper towel roll), rectangular prisms (any size boxes), and a sphere (styrofoam ball). They can also use the materials to create a pyramid for extra credit. Each group also gets a roll of aluminim foil. It makes it look more realistic if they wrap the parts in foil. I use hot glue to put all of the pieces together as they decide. They measure the dimensions of each body part to record and submit for a grade.
