Reflection: Checks for Understanding Take Apart 3D Shapes - Section 4: Closing/Summarizing


In this lesson, the close out proved to be very successful.  By allowing the students to share their drawing, they were able to see how another student visualized their work and recreated it.  There were a few instances where a student incorrectly created the new shape, and it required the students to discuss the drawing and compare it to the actual shape.
