Different Nets of Cubes Challenge Year 2/3/4/5

author avatar

You’re downloading this resource from ellieteacher


PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK! The children are given a net of a cube separated in two parts and they have to work out the different ways to stick the two parts together so that the two pieces make a cube when folded. It works well when the children work in pairs. There is another activity in case any of them solve it quickly, but it look them longer than I thought so you might not need the second activity. There is a link of the smart board slides to the activity and the sheets you will need, which are from the nrich maths website. Please leave feedback!

    I can see how well this tutorial is designed for a mixed class, well done! I only used part of it for my Y2 class but it saved me loads of time. Thank you!
