Students will be developing high levels of reasoning while deepening their thinking abilities as they engage in this learning task.
Teachers can project a page on the board or screen and model with her students how she/he would think through the task process. First, state the question out loud. Second, analyze the pictures and collect evidence about the shapes in question. Third, make a claim about the data. Finally, state the reasoning used to make the claim.
Students can work in teams or with partners to perform the task. Then the students can move on to completing the task independently.
All the slides have 4 thinking and responding opportunities on them.
One item could be completed with the teacher supporting the thinking. The next task could be completed with a partner and the remaining 2 tasks could be completed independently. How the teacher selects to have the student response pages done would be how she/he is differentiating the task for the students in the class.

Be sure to look for: 2D and 3D Shapes - Which One Doesn't Belong and Why. It is
a fun way to support student learning with shapes.
