    Does any one know of good web-sites with games relating to 3-D geometry? Our curriculum is weak in this area and we're trying to supplement as its a big percentage of our tested math content. Its been difficult to find good material though. If you've taught 3-D geometry in the past with any interesting lessons, class games, or helpful ideas I'm open for that too. Let me know if you have anything to share. I appreciate your help!

    The biggest help to me was purchasing a set of solid figure nets - the figures open up and lay down flat so kids can see each of the faces of the figures.

    We make large 3-D figures out of rolled newspaper. Each co-op group make a different figure. they are great demo models for teaching faces, verticies, and edges.

    We also read Mummy Math and Sir Circumference and th eSword in the Cone.
