These activities align with standard 7.G.A.3 or G.GMD.B.4. Students must describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures. These activities are great for whole class, small group, or individual instruction. They can be used as a review, practice, RtI, after school math workshops, guided math, extended learning, or enrichment.
Activities include the following:
1. Interactive vocabulary word wall
2. Sketch, draw, or stamp the two-dimensional cross-section sliced from a three-dimensional shape
3. Practice with identifying the two-dimensional cross-section
4. Additional practice that relies on abstract thinking and visualization
