Investigating 3D Shapes

Junior students utilised an app called Foldify to make these three dimensional shapes. The aim was to expose children to a range of different nets. Students enjoyed designing and manipulating the objects, as well as cutting and folding. Foldify is a fantastic app, with great mathematics potential.



Classroom Word Bank

Here’s a great way to create and display a class word bank in a different, yet aesthetically pleasing way.

  1. Generate a class word bank based on a topic.
  2. Get students to type in words throughout the day, week, month…
  3. Copy and paste the words (until you fill the page) in 2 columns.
  4. Font – Times New Roman, grey.
  5. Obtain an image related to the word bank and make the background of the image transparent. Copy and paste it onto the word bank. Some words will be covered but that does not matter as it has been replicated several times on the page.
  6. Set the background to a cream/contrasting colour.
  7. Insert a wood frame border.
  8. Print and display for children to use.
