This bundle includes 5 activities focusing on 2D and 3D shapes.
The 2D shapes include: circle, square, rectangle, and triangle.
The 3D shapes include: sphere, cube, rectangular prism, cylinder, cone, and pyramid.
All of the activities include teacher information and student directions. Examples and answer keys are provided where necessary.
: 18 task cards focusing on the sides and corners/vertices (two versions) in 2D shapes. Students will use the task cards and elastics, string, or yarn to create different shapes on their geoboards.
36 picture cards representing everyday objects for each 3D shape. Students can use the differentiated heading cards (names and pictures, pictures only, or names only) to sort the pictures by the different types of 3D shapes.
10 task cards giving clues about the characteristics of 2D and 3D shapes. Students have to determine what 2D or 3D shape is being described by the clues.
The Frayer model is used for this activity. Students fill in the characteristics (faces, edges, and vertices), draw what the shape looks like, give an example of an everyday object with the shape, and give a non example of an everyday object.
This activity will help solidify that 3D shapes are all around us in everyday objects. Students need to look around the classroom, or their home, to find common objects that match a 3D shape.
