## Reflection: Intervention and Extension Categories and Characteristics of 3D Solids - Section 4: Class Activity

If Smartboard technology isn't available, I would suggest using index cards to create a matching game.

On one set of cards write the different types of prisms and pyramids.

• triangular prism
• square prism
• rectangular prism
• pentagonal prism
• hexagonal prism
• octagonal prism
• triangular pyramid
• square pyramid
• rectangular pyramid
• pentagonal pyramid
• hexagonal pyramid
• octagonal pyramid

On another set of cards I would attach a picture of each type of prism and pyramid.

Students can work with their groups to match the picture with the category.
