3 Dimensional Shapes
Posters, Flip Book, Bingo Activity, & Worksheets
Shapes included in this unit: sphere, cylinder, cone, cube, triangular prism, rectangular prism, and rectangular pyramid.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT
7 shape posters (7 with description and 7 with no description)
A Flip Book with the 7 shapes and 2 vocabulary pages (faces, vertices, edges and bases)
Bingo Activity: 6 bingo boards and a set of calling cards (used in small group instruction, partner activity, or center)
A cut and paste worksheet with 6 shapes (match picture and name of shape)
3 chart worksheets (can be used to differentiate or provide multiple exposures). Students complete name of shape, number of edges, vertices, and faces for given picture of shape
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE
*Display posters as each shape is introduced
*I love using the flip book with my students. They can used in multiple ways. I prefer to have the flip books assembled prior to teaching. As we learn about each shape, students turn to that page. They complete the number of vertices, edges, and faces. I like to have them find a picture from a magazine that is an example and glue it on the page as well. On the vocabulary pages, I would have them use a different color highlighter for the edges, vertices, and faces. They can distinguish between them by highlighting with the corresponding color. They can also highlight on the individual shape pages as well.
*The Bingo I would suggest doing during small group instruction. As the teacher calls out a card, the students would place a chip on that shape. Since this is done in a small group, the teacher can immediately provide feedback and clarification as needed. The key will be in the discussion. As students mark a shape, ask them to defend their choice. After we have played this in class, I will add it to my math center.
*The chart worksheets can be used a variety of ways. To make it a little more engaging for my students, I have them complete a row as they construct a shape in class (using toothpicks/marshmallows or a paper template). They can also complete it by looking at 3D manipulatives you provide. I also would use the chart later as an assessment.
