Have you ever wanted to take you class outside for math class? I have and this product is perfect for any 1st-3rd grade classroom. Students will identify and name cylinders, rectangular prisms, cones, spheres, pyramids and triangular prisms.
To start this lesson you might want to review the shapes in the product. Then go outside and let the students explore and find shapes that look like 3D shapes. Afterwards, you can review the student responses as a class. From start to finish this activity took out 45 minutes.
