## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Modeling 3D Figures - Section 2: Lesson Middle

The modeling clay was a hit. I relented and gave a few minutes to play with it and work with it before we focused on math. Building the different perspectives were easy after they "played". My students seemed to take their work very seriously because they got the play out of their systems before they started working.
