Metre Cube - Plastic
Description / Metre Cube - Plastic
There’s no greater way to gain an understanding of what a cubic metre looks like than to build one yourself! Students will love getting involved in this practical educational activity.
Units are clearly displayed, helping children to make the connection between the 1m measurement and the transformation into a cubic measure. A metre stick is included for the purposes of demonstrating that every edge has equal length.
Made from a sturdy plastic, the pieces are safe for use by young children to assemble the cube. Once complete, you could challenge students to make 1m by 1m faces from newspaper to cover the cube.
Applicable in teaching geometry and volume, as well as allowing children to practise their measuring skills. They’ll need to cooperate with others in a group to successfully build the cube, fostering teamwork skills such as communication. Handy discussion starters are written on the storage box.
