Big Idea:Put on your 3D glasses, sit back and enjoy the show! In this lesson, children will look at, touch, and arrange shapes, and discover that though the positions of shapes may change, their attributes do not change.
Big Idea:If you build it, they will come ... What could be more fun than building bridges and castles in math class? In this lesson students analyze a composite shape to determine the individual 3D shapes that were used to make the composite shape.
Big Idea:Shapes All Around! In this assessment unit on 3D shapes, I'll see how students are doing with demonstrating skills for distinguishing between attributes and non-attributes of 3D shapes, as well as creating new composite 3D shapes.
