This unit includes BOTH the:
*USA Spelling of "Color" (the last 11 pages)

Your students will have a great time learning about 3-dimensional shapes with this Star Wars theme! Let me introduce you to Luke Sphere Walker, Hans Cylinder, Darth Pyramid, Princess Prism, Cone Bacca, and Cube 3po!! Yes they are all here to help your students explore a universe of 3D shapes! This is a MUST-HAVE pack! I know you will not be disappointed!

This unit is packed with 2 weeks worth of 3D geometry centers. I have focused on naming and identifying 3D shapes, the properties of 3D shapes (faces, edges, vertices), and the movement of 3D shapes (rolls, slides). I have used all of these activities successfully with my own class and they are both teacher and student friendly.

Included:
*6 posters
*2 reference sheets
*2 weekly tracking sheets
*10 math centers
*colourful information and activity cards with the Star Wars characters on them
*recording sheets for all the centers with black and white graphics for crisper photocopying
*clear explanations of the centers
*an end of the unit assessment
*assessment rubric

(2)c3pos Picture Perfect 3D Shapes
Students will colour the pictures of the 3D shapes and then glue them under the proper shape name.

Would it be possible for you to change the spelling of "colour" to "color" on the 3D Geometry Rubric. I saw that you had the USA spelling for all the other sheets, but that one was left off. Thanks!

Hi there,
I have added another rubric to the US pages section with the spelling "color". Just go back and download the unit again and you will get the additional page. Thanks for asking:)

Hi there! I just ordered your "May the Shapes Be With you..." and I was trying to get the Canadian version and I got the USA version instead. Is there anything I can do?

Hi. I love your unit- especially the "posters" based on the Star Wars characters. However when I downloaded it (and tried getting newest Adobe) only Darth Pyramid title showed up. The others either had a blank line where the name should be OR had various gray scale strips across the page. Everything else looked good. Any suggestions? Thanks

On your first few posters, I don't have the words. For example, on the sphere poster, there is a big black mark where the words should be. Also pg 48 has all these black marks where text should be! I'm not really sure why this happens and I'm not very tech savy! Do you know how to help???
Thanks,

Hello! This sounds like a TpT issue so I am not completely sure what to do. Have you tried re-downloading the entire unit? That might help. Or you can email me your email address and I can email the unit directly to you. You could also contact TpT directly - they are great about getting back to you quickly. They will be able to fix the problem for sure. Let me know what you are going to do. I am going to contact TpT too.

I am interested in purchasing the two Star Wars math units you currently have available. I noticed the spelling "colour" versus "color". I teach in the US, and I was wondering if you had a different version of spelling available?! Just curious!! They are super cute units!

Hi!
I just uploaded both these units with the change from "colour" to "color." I really appreciate you taking the time to ask me this question. I hope your students have fun ~ my class loved these units!
