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.





B.Draw a line segment.





C.Draw a square.





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





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)
