Wow. This is great Alycia. I am excited to do this activity with my students. I actually did gumdrops and toothpicks with a kindergarten class one year for them to explore 3D shapes. It was amazing how much they created and how they were able to understand the concept of 3D shapes this way. We also expanded this lesson with clay models.
