Seasonal Fun

A lesson in geometry, a holiday pop of color, and an excuse to begin the month of December with a fun paper craft. Mathematics is so cool.
Platonic Solids are named after the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato. There are only five of these 3-D figures, in which all the edges are of equal length. all the angles of equal measure, and all the faces are congruent shapes: Cube, Tetrahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron.
We're hoping to create a Polyhedra craze with our holiday door decoration.
