Creating a working model to demonstrate the four types of triangles using a square box design that opens and hides information is a fantastic way to make learning interactive and engaging.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to making this model using cardboard, color paper, and chopsticks.

### Materials Needed:

- Cardboard (for the base, square boxes, and center label)
- Color paper (for covering and labeling)
- Scissors or craft knife
- Glue or hot glue gun
- Markers or pens
- Ruler
- Chopsticks (for the opening mechanism)
- Brass fasteners or paper fasteners (for attaching the rotating disks)

#### 1. Prepare the Base and Square Boxes

**Base Preparation**:- Cut a large square piece of cardboard for the base. Cover it with color paper for a neat finish.

**Square Boxes**:- Cut four smaller square pieces of cardboard. These will be the individual boxes representing each type of triangle.
- Cover these square pieces with color paper.

**Center Label**:- Cut a smaller square piece of cardboard for the center label. Cover it with color paper and write “Types of Triangles” on it.

#### 2. Label and Attach Boxes

**Label Boxes**:- Label each box with one type of triangle. The four types of triangles are:
- Equilateral Triangle
- Isosceles Triangle
- Scalene Triangle
- Right Triangle

- Label each box with one type of triangle. The four types of triangles are:
**Attach Boxes to the Base**:- Arrange the four labeled boxes around the center label on the base.
- Attach them to the base with glue, ensuring there is enough space for the opening and closing mechanism.

#### 3. Create Definitions and Examples

**Definitions and Examples**:- On each box, write the definition of the triangle type and draw an example showing the angles and sides.
- Use color paper to make the examples visually appealing and easy to understand.

#### 4. Create the Opening Mechanism

**Chopsticks Mechanism**:- Attach a chopstick to each box with brass fasteners or glue. This will act as a lever to open and close the information flap.

**Information Flaps**:- Cut small pieces of cardboard to create flaps that can hide and reveal the information on each box.
- Cover the flaps with color paper and label them with “Open” on one side and “Close” on the other.

#### 5. Assemble the Model

**Attach Information Flaps**:- Use brass fasteners to attach the flaps to the boxes. Ensure they can be easily lifted and lowered using the chopstick mechanism.

**Position the Flaps**:- Ensure the flaps are evenly spaced and can open and close without obstruction.

#### 6. Final Touches

**Ensure Functionality**:- Check that all flaps can easily open and close to reveal and hide the information on each box.

**Add Visual Aids**:- Use different colors for different triangle types to make them stand out.
- Add small arrows or lines to clearly illustrate the sides and angles of each triangle.

### Example Layout:

**Top Left Box**: Equilateral Triangle with definition and example (all sides equal, all angles 60°).**Top Right Box**: Isosceles Triangle with definition and example (two sides equal, two angles equal).**Bottom Left Box**: Scalene Triangle with definition and example (no sides equal, no angles equal).**Bottom Right Box**: Right Triangle with definition and example (one angle 90°).

### Steps to Make the Model:

**Base Setup**:- Cut a large square piece of cardboard for the base and cover it with color paper.
- Attach the center label to the middle of the base.

**Square Boxes**:- Cut four smaller squares for the triangle types and cover them with color paper.
- Label each box with the type of triangle and attach it around the center label.

**Definitions and Examples**:- Write definitions and draw examples on each box.
- Attach flaps to each box using brass fasteners.
- Attach chopsticks to the flaps to act as levers.

**Final Touches**:- Ensure all flaps open and close smoothly.
- Add visual aids and color coding for clarity.

By following these steps, you can create an interactive and educational model that demonstrates the four types of triangles effectively.
