Reflection: Student Led Inquiry 2D & 3D Shapes - Section 3: Activity


I chose to do a match up activity because it allows students to discuss the 3D shape image, attributes, name and real world example. It also allows students to have a hands on tool that they can use to match up, manipulate and move around. I like to give my students opportunities to discuss and debate (MP3) on their own instead of doing all of the thinking for them.
