Product Description
**UPDATED** I have updated graphics in this product. I've also added in a 2D/3D shape sort.

This is the second "Geometry Gems" product I've created. Use this unit to teach your students all about 3D shapes. Filled with all the same great activities that are included in "Geometry Gems: 2D" (3D shape attribute posters, anchor/pocket chart materials, shape data sheets/graphs, etc.), this product will meet the varying needs of your students. This product includes the following:

1. 3D Attribute shape posters (sphere, cube, cylinder, pyramid, cone, and rectangular prism)
2. Anchor chart materials and "Shape or Not?" sorts (sphere, cube, cylinder, pyramid, cone, and rectangular prism)
3. 2D/3D sort & Attribute sorts (Rolls, Does not roll; Stacks/Does not stack; Slides/Does not slide
4. "Real-world Shapes" recording sheets with 2 corresponding graph formats (sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, and rectangular prism)
5. 3D shape "Foldy Flap" (sphere, cube, cone, and cylinder) - matching attributes to correct shape
6. 3D shape writing sheets (one with a sentence stem and one without). Both writing sheets have a blank page for students to free-draw a shape.

This unit covers the following state standards:

Common Core State Standards:
-K.G.A.2 {Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size}
-K.G.A.3 {Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”)}
-K.G.B.4 {Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length)}

-K.6B {identify three-dimensional solids, including cylinders, cones, spheres, and cubes, in the real world}
-K.6E {classify and sort a variety of regular and irregular two- and three-dimensional figures regardless of orientation or size}
-K.8A {collect, sort, and organize data into two or three categories}
-K.8B {use data to create real-object and picture graphs}
-K.8C {draw conclusions from real-object and picture graphs}
-1.6B {distinguish between attributes that define a two-dimensional or three-dimensional figure and attributes that do not define the shape}
-1.6E {identify three-dimensional solids, including spheres, cones, cylinders, rectangular prisms (including cubes), and triangular prisms, and describe their attributes using formal geometric language}
-1.8A {collect, sort, and organize data in up to three categories using models/representations such as tally marks or T-charts}
-1.8B {use data to create picture and bar-type graphs}
-1.8C {draw conclusions and generate and answer questions using information from picture and bar-type graphs}

If you have ANY questions, please let me know. I'm happy to help in any way that I can!
