## Reflection: Student Led Inquiry How Can I Find Similar Attributes ? - Section 3: Partner Activity

In this activity, I knew that many of my students would choose real world objects that are 3D vs. 2D. I've prepared for tomorrow's lesson, where we sort and create categories for 2 and 3D shapes. The intent of this activity is to increase student awareness of the math around them  and to recognize these shapes around them in the classroom.
