Description:

In this activity, learners create three-dimensional shapes by making some origami models of simple boxes and containers. Then, learners draw these shapes to explore how three-dimensional shapes can be represented in two dimensions. They'll also observe and draw the models from different perspectives - or "frames of reference" - to see that things look different depending on how you view them.
