I am so excited to have released a NO PREP sequel unit to this best seller! Here's the link if you are interested!
Return of the 3D Solids {No Prep - 3D Geometry Unit}

Your students will have a great time learning about 3-dimensional shapes with this Star Wars theme! Let me introduce you to Luke Sphere Walker, Hans Cylinder, Darth Pyramid, Princess Prism, Cone Bacca, and Cube 3po!! Yes they are all here to help your students explore a universe of 3D shapes! This is a MUST-HAVE pack! I know you will not be disappointed!

This unit is packed with 2 weeks worth of 3D geometry centers. I have focused on naming and identifying 3D shapes, the properties of 3D shapes (faces, edges, vertices), and the movement of 3D shapes (rolls, slides). I have used all of these activities successfully with my own class and they are both teacher and student friendly.

Included:
*6 posters
*2 reference sheets
*2 weekly tracking sheets
*10 math centers
*colourful information and activity cards with the Star Wars characters on them
*recording sheets for all the centers with black and white graphics for crisper photocopying
*clear explanations of the centers
*an end of the unit assessment
*assessment rubric
