Session 1  Lead-in

Ask students: “When speaking of a cube, what’s the first thing that pops up in your mind? What is a cube used for?”

Invite two students to write down their answers on the blackboard and tell the rest to think about the two questions as well.

Encourage students to share what they think.

Then give your explanations: “Well, a cube can make us think of so many things. The most common cubes must be those packaging boxes. They take on square shapes and have straightforward designs. A pen holder is also an item that takes on a cube shape.”
