Students use these photograph cards as guides to build matching models. Building different objects with Unifix cubes helps children learn about geometry, and allows them to use shapes in a new way. This activity can also help with visual discrimination skills.
Supports Common Core Mathematics Standards:
Students describe their physical world using geometric ideas (e.g., shape, orientation, spatial relations) and vocabulary. They identify, name, and describe basic two-dimensional shapes, such as squares, triangles, circles, rectangles, and hexagons, presented in a variety of ways (e.g., with different sizes and orientations), as well as three-dimensional shapes such as cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres. They use basic shapes and spatial reasoning to model objects in their environment and to construct more complex shapes.
