PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students are guided to discover that prisms have two parallel bases and additional rectangular faces, while pyramids have a single base and additional triangular faces.

Two versions are provided. Version A has extra guidance and helps students to make observations through additional questioning and instructing them to color the faces in the nets. Version B allows students to use a true inquiry process to make their own observations and discoveries. They develop their own definitions for pyramid and prism by writing sentences about what they have noticed.

Each version of the activity is two pages. This can be done independently or in pairs.
