The Getting in Shape game gives kids the opportunity to build some models of 3-D geometric figures. Three simple pieces are all that are needed to make these models. A square, a triangle, and elastic bands (to connect the pieces) are used to create cubes, triangular prisms, and square pyramids. There is a luck factor of course! Each student has to spin the pieces he or she needs when they're needed. After all, a triangle won't help in building a cube. There are different ways to create the same figure as well. For example, with the cube, a student could spin enough squares to construct the cube or could connect different squares with bands at the appropriate spots.
