Paper Houses - Entertaining and Educational

Can you mark 1 million on a number line spanning 20 to 1 trillion? Let's Play Math posted a great activity for visualizing large numbers this week.

Paper houses can be used for many purposes. We recently constructed medieval houses as part of our history study. This week Wesens-Art linked-up a post on paper houses used for Christmas decorations. The similar houses we made turned out to be a great kid project as it involved cutting, crafting and 3D visualization skills. Anytime I see a 2D object become a 3D object I think back to my 10 years employment as a mechanical engineer. This is a great skill to develop and making paper houses is a fun way to practice. Be sure to visit Wesens-Art for the tutorial and to get the template.
