Sorry, the snow day yesterday is going to compress our coverage of Ms. Leverett-King's math project, teaching kids to how to create 3-D geometric shapes both on paper and WITH paper. You saw Stage 1 last post, just below.

Here's Stage 2: First graders learning to draw not just standard shapes, but houses, in 3-D.

Finally, here's Stage 3, in which the kids made actual shapes from cubes to pentagonal prisms. Pretty great, aren't they?
