Students love to explore geometry with their hands using flexagons!
Flexagons are fun little strips of paper that can be flexed or folded in certain ways to reveal faces besides the original front and back. This flexagon construction allows students to construct and decorate flexagons with three hexagonal faces. This activity is great for encouraging creativity and innovation in math class. For the more challenging six face version, check out my Hexahexaflexagon Activity.
For an added bonus, use this activity during "Flexagon Month" in October to honor Martin Gardner, born October 21, 1914. Gardner wrote a monthly column on “recreational mathematics” for Scientific American. His first article covered hexaflexagons.
