These 10 multiple choice questions show 3-D shapes sliced and asks students to determine the 2 dimensional shape of the cross section. The cards can be used in math centers or as an activity playing the Four Corners Game.
Playing the Game: Students choose the paddle that represents their answer and, on cue, move to the corresponding corner. A student from the group shares their explanation of their answer which often results in good class discussions and an opportunity to guide discussions toward higher-order thinking.
To keep students from just “following the crowd “ I have them secretly choose which paddle has their answer choice and take it with them to the corner. I tell them it’s their ticket into the corner.
Students with the right corner receive a point. Students with the most right answers win!
