Activity Cube Template

Digital Asset Published 6/24/11 Last updated on 2/28/20
The activity cube or pattern cube template allows users to add text to six sides of a flattened cube. The PDF has form fields that enable typing text onto the template. Users can then print the page, cut, fold, and glue the cube. One science application of the cube is to teach a lesson on the nature of science. There are also plenty of vocabulary and math applications for activity cubes. You can also erase text by clicking the Clear TEXT button. Reference: Understanding Science. 2011.

I've been looking for a template of this that has the text fields. Thank you!

This looks like a great activity for many grades. Rhyming is the example, but any set of related facts could be incorporated. This has got me thinking. This is a good beginning for me.
