This activity is part of a larger geometry unit. This set uses clues to describe geometric definitions, 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes . These clues may have more than one reasonable solution which allows students to compare and contrast specific shapes
I use the cards in a small group at first and have them sort the shape cards in their groups as the clues are given. Students then share their strategies for determining the given shape from the clues.
When the activity is moved to a center, students shuffle the cards, draw one clue card and then sort the cards to find the right shape. They record their decision on the student response sheet. When they finish, they can use the answer key to check their answers.
Included are 36 clue cards, 66 shape cards, 41 vocabulary cards, a student response sheet and an answer key.
