The Shapes in Paper Kit enables students to build a pyramid, a cylinder, a cube and a prism. They learn how these 3-D shapes can be constructed from flat materials, similar to what an engineer might do in designing ductwork or metal cabinetry for industry. The finished products can be used as samples for practicing shading and 3-D renderings.
