Printable NetsValerie Mcclintick
These printable nets can be helpful for teaching young students geometry and geometric concepts. Plus they are sorta fun to make! These printable nets are available free on our sister site FileFolderFun.com Here is a quick peek at how to assemble and use 3D nets in your math learning centers.
We recommend you print your nets on colored paper. This makes it more fun and colorful.
You can print on cardstock and laminate if you’re making a classroom set, but we’ve just used regular strength printer paper for this set.
Cut your nets out carefully, the tabs are in light gray and can be difficult to see on the colored paper, so go slow!
Crease all your folds. We assembled ours so that the lines are inside the shape and don’t show.
Use a glue stick on the tabs for best results.
Here is how our cube looks when assembled!
They won’t be perfect, but they are an inexpensive way to add a little hands on fun to your math lessons.
