Andrea Palmer
Somerville, MA
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

Students explore cube nets in an effort to understand what properties are common to all nets that form a cube. Students work hands-on with nets and are then pushed to use their experience to visually determine whether other nets will form a given figures.
