Let’s Make Shapes!

Hands-on learning is always way more fun than passive learning, so let’s create shapes with plastic cups and craft sticks! First decided what shape to make… For this example, let’s make a triangle together. A triangle has 3 sides, so we will need 3 cups and 3 sticks. Place the cups upside-down to be the base of your shape. Next, lay a craft stick from one cup to another cup — great, now we have formed 1 side of the triangle. Keep connecting the sticks to the cups until you have all 3 sides.

What other shapes can you make with your cups and craft sticks?
