Working in the Math Nets Sandbox

Third and fourth grade students need to work on math nets as part of their math curriculum and since I teach form and shape in art, I was asked to help teach this concept. I created special interactive SMART Notebook activities and we also did some color theory related paper/pencil activities. Today the kids got an introduction to the Reaction Grid and the sandbox I created for them. Next time we will create prims to match the nets on the building platforms.Virtual world building tools are perfect for these spatial concepts. (See video below)
