PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Hamster Cage Exploration Activity is a hands-on in class project that is designed to be done in pairs. The prep work for the teacher is minimal, but it does require good classroom management to get the students talking mathematically with each other. This activity encourages students to discover the names and attributes of 3-D figures through observation.This is a flexible activity, and I have included several options such as labels for the hamster cage and an activity sheet.

Objective: To compare and contrast 2-D and 3-D figures verbally and to draw conclusions based on their attributes

Length of Activity: 1 hour (can be split up over 2 class periods)

When to use: (1) As an exploration and engage activity at the beginning of geometry or (2) as an elaborate activity for enrichment

What grades: Very engaging for grades 3rd-5th but can be adapted for older grades

Teacher Notes, including set up instructions and higher-level thinking questions
