I Have the Same Number of Faces as Vertices. What Am I?
My students need to learn to construct these solids to provide practice identifying geometric solids given their properties; and to guide the construction of polyhedrons.

Hands-on learning, what an easy way to understand difficult geometry concepts for 4th graders.
Our school is in New Mexico, we live in a small town where most of the school's population comes from low-income homes.
My students are eager to learn and are very inquisitive. They work hard and are eager to please; we do not have many materials in the classroom, but we make do with what we have.
The understanding of geometric solids and their properties is one of the concepts my students need to learn in fourth grade. It is also mandated by our state's standards and benchmarks. My students need to know this facts to help them pass the state test. The activities that I will be able to do with my students using these resources, is teaching them to apply their ability to describe solid figures, and have them explore the relationships between vertices, edges, and faces of polyhedrons. These activities will also help them compare the attributes of solid figures. Learning these concepts will help my students become active learners and will give them the drive to succeed in their academic years.
The best way to learn is hands-on, especially when it comes to math.
When students use visualization, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles, their learning becomes easier. These materials will help my students review the properties of common geometric solids. This is also one of the strands in our state's standards and benchmarks. Students need to understand these properties before they go into the next grade, and to help them pass the state test.
