Pull up nets is a fantastic, fun way to learn how a net forms a polyhedron. In this time of distance learning I encourage students to craft with their parents and experience the wow moment when the net becomes a solid.

1. Cut out the net for your pull-up polyhedron.
2. Fold along the edges of each face using a ruler.
3. Use a hole puncher to make holes at the small circles numbered 1, 2, 3, …
4. Thread string through the holds in ascending order. Make sure the string goes up through hole 1 and down through the last hole.
5. Use glue to stick the face of the cube with the number 1 hole on to a surface.
6. Pull the string gently to pull up your net into a 3D shape.
