## Reflection: Unit Exams 3D Shapes Unit Assessment - Section 3: Independent Practice

When creating the unit of geometry, I decided to create a separate part of the unit for 3D shapes.  I did due to the abstract nature of 3D shapes and so that my students will see a difference between 3D and 2D shapes.  This unit assessment, proved to be successful as all of my students were able to master the standards.

See the video for more thoughts on how the assessment aligns to the standards.

# 3D Shapes Unit Assessment

Unit 5: Geometry
Lesson 7 of 18

## 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.
