## Reflection: Joy 3-D Models from 2-D Views - Section 2: Building the Models

Both classes really enjoyed this lesson.  I'm glad I had time to teach this lesson, because this kind of work often gets overlooked for "more important" topics.  I think it is worth noting that while this is not a major topic for 7th grade common core, it did generate major joy.  The students especially enjoyed creating their own designs and challenging other groups to find the solution.
