This year, I was blessed with the opportunity to teach geometric solids for 2nd grade children at the same school my daughter studies.
They are about forty 7/8yo children that surprise each time I was among them! I encouraged them to watch some buildings on the streets so they could design and assemble a city with paper models using only the solids we’ve learned together – spheres, cones, prisms, pyramids, cylinders, rectangular solids, and cubes.
This small city they created was exhibited at the school’s Science Fair and it was used as part of a lighting pollution experiment. In order to make me completely happy, the school invited me to exhibit all my paper models and to provide a paper model workshop at the Fair.
Feedback was beyond my best expectations.
