My project: A cube to get in SHAPE


My Project - Jennifer Familetti



To make the cube, start by using a pencil on a piece of cardboard or posterboard to draw a cross, then pencil in six squares, fold on the penciled lines and tape the ends in place.

Once your cube is taped together, cut out squares of construction paper that will cover each side and write exercises on each square before attaching it to the cube.

Kids: Looking for a fun way to get in shape? You can make your own exercise cube with these easy steps.

What you will need:

• A piece of cardboard or poster board

• Scissors

• A black marker

• Construction paper

• Tape or glue

• A pencil

Instructions:

1. Start by using a pencil on a piece of cardboard or poster board to draw a cross shape, making one side longer than the others.

2. Cut out the cross and pencil six squares within it.

3. Fold on the penciled line and tape the ends in place.

4. Cut out six squares of construction paper to cover each side of the cube, writing an exercise on each square.

5. Tape or glue each square onto the cube.

When it’s finished, roll your cube like dice in a rolling game to see what exercise you will do. You can make it into a multi-player game by assigning a different number of points to each exercise. Take turns, adding up your points as you go along.

To make the cube, start by using a pencil on a piece of cardboard or posterboard to draw a cross, then pencil in six squares, fold on the penciled lines and tape the ends in place.
