Make a cube out of straws and have a go at this practical
Investigate the number of faces you can see when you arrange three cubes in different ways.
We need to wrap up this cube-shaped present, remembering that we
can have no overlaps. What shapes can you find to use?
Use multilink cubes to make the arrangements. Keep each one so
you can make sure they're all different.
When you have drawn your arrangements on dotty paper, try giving
them to a friend. He or she can make the shapes as a check to see
whether you've drawn them correctly.
