Covering a Box

I just have to share what we did today in math. I'm sorry trees but when you look at the pictures we went through a lot of paper. Although we did recycle what we didn't use. 
The task was to cover a box with paper. The paper couldn't overlap, no tape, staples or glue could be used. There were allowed to use scissors and pencils. There were a lot of great questions about wrapping it like a present or other ideas they were mulling around in their heads. They got to work and here are some photos of what they came up with. They eventually created nets, all on their own from conversations we had about what worked and what wasn't working. I couldn't pick a couple to show you so I'm including them all in a slideshow.
