Math-If I was going to draw a volcano, it would look similar to a triangle. If I was going to make a 3-D volcano, it would look like a pyramid. Print out these 3-D nets and fold them into 3-D figures.
If you don’t have a printer, look at the nets and think about the shape they would make if you folded them. Then, look around your house and find 2 objects that match each 3-D shape. Have fun!

Math- I’ve never gotten to go to Hawaii, but if I did, I know it would be a long airplane ride. As a matter of fact, it would take somewhere between 10-14 hours depending on the flight path. Use a piece of paper and design a paper airplane. See how far it flies. Then, make a change to your plane (fold it differently, add a paperclip to add weight, etc.) and see if you can make it fly even farther. Have fun!
**On my phone, I went to my maps app and typed in Honolulu. I had the option of Flyover or Directions. If you get this option, click Flyover. Pretty cool!
