It is time for a 3D Shape SHOWDOWN!!! 9 activities, materials, nets, everything you will need to teach an intense unit on 3D shapes. Let the battle begin!! INCLUDED: Activities that will fit with your 2D shape unit!!!
Showdown Anchor Charts: Use these anchor charts to introduce each shape, discuss attributes and to refer to them when needed. Laminate and post on a bulletin board. Questions, answers and gestures included.
Meet Your Match!: Use these flash cards to help reinforce 3D shape vocabulary, reinforce word and picture connection and to help connect to objects in the real world. Play a timed matching game.
Sort That 3D Shape!: Use the matching cards from the previous activity to help reinforce attributes of different 3D Shapes by sorting them. Discuss vertices, faces, curved sides, straight sides, angles and right angles.
Compare and Contrast Core Showdown: Compare and contrast 3D shapes to other 3D or 2D Shapes using the provided Venn Diagrams. Choose your own 3D shapes to compare and contrast, as well.
Write it, Pump it up, CAPITALIZE it!!: Students will highlight each shape, color it, draw a picture of it in real life, write it in the lines, write it in bubble letters and write it in capital letters!
Shape Up! Mystery Shape: Put a bunch of different 3D shapes in a bag. Have students grab one without pulling it out, make a guess as to what shape it is, record whether or not they were correct and, with help from the 3D Shape Statistics Sheet, record the number or angles, vertices, etc. Students can draw a picture of what it looks like and a picture of where it could be found in real life
Exercise Your Options: Students are given a 3D shape and 2 different nets that could make the shape. Students must look carefully at each option and choose 1 of them by circling it. Then students must use the provided templates to create the shape to see if they were correct. Then, they must record whether or not they were correct and why.
3D Watercolor Art: Have students color their chosen net with wax crayon, avoiding glue tabs. Choose a watercolor to paint over a light wash. Allow to dry. Cut out net and glue together to create your 3D shape. Tape to a piece of construction paper to create a cool 3D city, Add windows, doors, streets, street signs, etc. to create a great group project.
Shape UP! Fitness Test - What 3D Shape?: This final quiz will help to assess your students’ knowledge.
