*A WRINKLE IN TIME*

SAMPLE CLASSROOM WORKSHEET
## Chapter 5

**Instructions:**
*When working on this sheet, think about some of the ideas that Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who introduce to Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace in Chapter 5 of the book (pages 74-90). First, re-read the chapter, put the book away, and then start working on this sheet.*
**A.**Draw a point.

How many sides does it have? _____
*(hint: this is a trick question!)*

**B.**Draw a line segment.

How many sides does it have?_____

**C.**Draw a square.

How many sides does it have? _____
How many faces does it have? _____
*(hint: To find the number of "faces," think of holding it up in front you like a mirror. The number of "faces" will be the number of images that you see of yourself as you rotate the object. Note - there are no two sided mirrors.)*

**D.** Draw a cube. *(you can do this by drawing two interlocking squares, and then connecting them together.)*

How many sides does it have? ______
How many faces does it have? ______

**E. BONUS** - After discussing the previous objects in Chapter 5 of the book, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Who introduce an object that is even more complex than a cube, a tesseract. Can you think of what a tesseract might look like?
It is difficult to draw, but based a pattern that we just discovered about faces and sides, can you guess how many sides there are in a tesseract? ______
What about the number of faces? _____
*(hint: we built a cube by taking two interlocking squares and connecting them with four other line segments. For building a tesseract, we would need to use two interlocking cubes and then connect them together using eight new line segments)*
