This resource from the Department for Education develops the 3-D thinking required to move between solid objects and their 2-D nets. The activities are placed in the context of packaging. Students flatten out a packaging box to show the flat 2-D 'net' that made up the whole pack and investigate how the net could be adapted to fit a different sized product. They then work in small "design teams" to produce viable solutions to a real-world 3-D problem - designing eye-catching and well-fitting packaging for a designer ball. The design teams then 'pitch' their ideas to the class.
