(psst...check the boxes next to each step to mark as complete)
Use 4 tooth picks or pretzel sticks and 4 marshmallows to make a square. Use 3 tooth picks or pretzel sticks and 3 marshmallows to make a triangle.
Calculate the area of your square with the equation Area of Square = Length x Width.
Calculate the area of your triangle with the equation Area of Triangle = ½ Base x Height.
Create a CUBE by adding on to your square. Calculate the volume of you cube with the equation Volume of Cube = Length x Width x Height.
