This unit includes activities that will help you introduce and focus your study on 2D and 3D shapes! What's great about this pack is there is no wrong way to use it - it's totally up to you! I've included a variety of pocket chart sorts that can be used whole group or during centers. I've included printables that can be used as review, assessments or exit tickets.
Here's a closer look at whats included:
*2D shape and name sort and printable (some students still need practice identifying shapes and their names!)
*"Where does it go?" sort and printable (activity where students have to identify shapes that have been flipped or turned)
*Side and vertex sort (this one comes with posters, pocket chart sort and printable)
*Defining and Non-defining attribute sort (comes with posters, sort and printable and also comes with directions on how to introduce concept)
*Composing shapes activity (students will either use the shapes provided to compose a new shape OR they will be given directions to help them compose a new shape ***a picture of this activity is in preview)
*Open vs. Closed shape sort (comes with poster, sort and printable)
*2D vs. 3D sort and printable
*How many of each? activity (comes with directions and printable for a hands on activity to teach faces, edges and vertices on 3D shapes)
*Mystery Shape Riddles (printables made for notebooks where students have to use the clues to determine which 3D shape the riddle is referring to)
*3D Real World Objects sort and printable (also includes a journal for students to dig deeper into explaining the attributes of 3D shapes and where else they would find them in real life)
*3D shape magazine hunt (printables for hands on fun!)
*3D shape comparison activity (printables and sorts for students to compare which 3D shapes can stack, roll or slide)
All activities come with directions on how you might want to implement them into your classroom.
