Updated: Short Lesson...

Some kids are done... What do I do?...  I need a quick sub plan... I'm sick as a dog today... Here's an idea.


I was inspired by this Flickr find.




Here is a great site for grid paper.  Who knew this was even out there?  How cool!  (click here)

I will update this post after giving this a try for my self.




UPDATE!!!:


I'm so glad that the creator of this lesson found me.  Maureen wrote me and had a couple of suggestions about presenting this lesson.  
  • make single blocks to start with 'til the pupils get the hand of it

  • always start with a top surface-have some cubes and cuboids around for them to observe

  • get them to self check their drawings by looking for Vertical and diagonal lines only, (no horizontal)

  • remind them that diagonal lines bust always pass through a dot, to make them the correct angle.now blogging at www.mrscrosbie.blogspot.com

  18. I am always looking for new things to keep students entertained when they yell out I'M DONE! I have found color sudoku puzzles. I haven't tried it yet though. I found it on Pinterest. I need to cut small squares of construction paper. The goal is just like regular sudoku but you cannot repeat the color.

  19. Hi, This is one of my lessons, so glad that everyone is getting so much fun from it! Make it easy for you and the kids, start small,
    -make single blocks to start with 'til the pupils get the hand of it
    -always start with a top surface
    -have some cubes and cuboids around for them to observe
    -get them to self check their drawings by looking for Vertical and diagonal lines only, (no horizontal)
    - remind them that diagonal lines bust always pass through a dot, to make them the correct angle.
