## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Describe Prisms and Pyramids Using Algebra - Section 1: Lesson Beginning

I am glad that I started this lesson with this introduction.  It wasn't in my original plan.  I was just going to define vertex, edge, face, and base for the students.  This activity helped build momentum for the rest of the lesson.  It took a few minutes for students to remember some of the terms but all of the terms were student generated.  Plus, we had some good conversation around the difference between a base and a face.  Yes, some corny rhymes did ensue.
