8TH GRADEʻS ICOSAHEDRON

Mr. Caudill's first period advisory class has been learning about icosahedron.

 An icosahedron is composed of twenty equilateral triangles. It is one of the so-called Platonic Solids (the others are: tetrahedron, octahedron, cube, and dodecahedron). In the first few days of the school year, the class worked on constructing one. It is now displayed in the front of the school.

Above Mr. Caudill's class put the finishing touches on their icosahedron. Below, they are all smiles, standing proudly in their display.

When asked why he chose to do this project with his class, Mr. Caudill replied, "Besides being pleasing to the eye and fairly easy to construct, I believe it makes a good introductory class project because it requires cooperation between classmates, and it is a great metaphor for class strength and unity. If each student's triangle is strong, the whole structure will be strong!"
