Nets of a Cube
All 11 Nets of a cube
This is an activity based on finding the 11 nets from amongst a collection of possibilities. This approach has a lot to commend it, since it encourages children to visualise the what happens as a net folds up to make a solid. This act of visualising the folding of a net is one of the essential reasons for working with them, and is far more important mathematically than simply constructing solids from their nets.
