Don't take my word for it- Elisa K. said: "This project totally ROCKED! My students LOVED it and it was a breeze for them to complete independently after reading a CCSS text exemplar! They helped each other putting it together and the finished display was AMAZING! Lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" from other teachers when I hung them in our hallway! Great product!"
PLEASE NOTE: A rubric for grading is NOT included due to the varying needs of teachers. I DO have a rubric that I use for this project. If you would like a FREE copy, email (see below) me and I will send it out to you. Also, if you need a tutorial in putting a dodecahedron together, check out this post my Miss Math Dork: http://www.missmathdork.com/2013/09/multiplication-facts-and-quick-tutorial.html
I hope you enjoy using this kit as much as I have.
Happy Creating, MrHughes
