Reflection: Lesson Planning Make New 3D Shapes - Section 3: Independent Practice


After teaching this lesson, I realized that some students missed the idea of how the surfaces of the new shape were put together.  In teaching this lesson again, I would be sure to emphasize the importance of how the new shapes are related to each other along with their relative position.
