Cube Nets

This interactive applet helps students develop spatial visualization skills and geometric understanding in both two and three dimensions. From an array of possible nets, students try to select the ones that actually fold to a cube. The applet supports the lesson Building a Box (cataloged separately). An animation that shows one net being folded is included.
