A Rubik’s Cube is a puzzle that looks complicated, but it can be solved if you follow the steps. We read the solution guide from You Can Do the Cube and we worked together to solve one of the cubes. It’s not too hard if you read the steps carefully. We won’t tell you exactly how to do it, but you can do it yourself if you read the website!
We started on the white side. The first step is to make a white cross, by bringing the white edge pieces to the white side.
Then you solve the rest of the white side, by putting the white corners in the right places.
Next you solve the middle section. After you are finished with this step the Rubik’s Cube is two-thirds complete.
Last is the yellow side, which is opposite the white side. This was the trickiest part for us. It was hard to understand how to get the yellow corners in the right spots, but we finally did it!
After you finish the cube you can do other things with it, like make a checkerboard pattern.
People even create art with Rubik’s Cubes. We found a video of a Rubik’s Cube mosaic that one school made to look like Abraham Lincoln. The speech you hear on the video is the Gettysburg Address. We’re going to be learning about that soon!
