    This was only 2-D, since we will begin to cover 3-D shapes next week. That will be fun, too, Linda, because I am planning on having my kids create Christmas boxes out of nets. Our state standards have us teach the kids to make a cube, cylinder, and other 3-D shapes from a net. What better time than Christmas to do this. After my kids make the "box" (cube), I will have them decorate those boxes with Christmas wrapping and add a baby bow. I plan to have the kids make up some chore/favor coupons for their parents which they can put into the boxes for Christmas. I would imagine that they kids will want to take their 3-D items home, rather than putting them onto the tree. We will continue to add items to our symmetrical tree, of course. I can still see more room to add more 2-D objects. It is starting to look pretty with its tinsel, bows, and the kids' geometric patterns.

    A teacher down the hall in fourth grade is using a regular, standing Christmas tree for her 3-D geome"tree." That looks pretty, too.
