In this geometry activity, students will create 3-D boxes from a 2-D net and examine their relationships. Students can examine simple or complex nets depending on their grade level. In the Cyberchase exhibit, students will use geometric shapes to create three dimensional solids. This basic review of shapes will help students create a connection from the individual shapes, to a net (a flat shape that can be folded into a 3-D solid), and finally to the completed solid.
