And now is a great time to explore some polyhedra if you haven’t yet done so! Here are some websites shared by Mark Kaercher that are great.

**The Challenge**: Make your very own paper roll polyhedra. All inspired by this tweet from Mr. Allan shared by Clarissa Grandi

*Materials Needed*: Paper rolls. Can be toilet paper or paper towel rolls or you can make your own!

*Math concepts* *you could explore with this challenge: *angles, geometry, polygons, polyhedra, symmetry, vertices/intersections

*Depending on how you use this activity, you may engage with different mathematical standards. I’ve listed possible connected math content above. Here are a few suggestions for how you might integrate the 8 mathematical practices. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments! *

5.) Use appropriate tools strategically. *You may have to play with several different types of materials to succeed at this. Perhaps you need to adjust the width of your paper strips. Perhaps you need a thicker or thinner material. *

7.) Look for and make use of structure. *How can you make use of the fact that the platonic solids each have uniform faces and vertices? *
