Instructional Ideas
  • Design a bulletin board that contains pictures of objects with labels stating whether they are 2-D or 3-D, gather the collection of everyday objects under the board 
  • Invite learners to bring in one object from home they wish to present to the class
  • Conduct the plan during math center rotations—work with small groups to discuss shapes and complete a chart 
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires a collection of specific-shaped objects found inside the classroom
  • Participants should be familiar with geometric shapes 
Pros
  • The lesson uses concrete examples to emphasize the concept 
  • Practice pages come in multiple levels 
Cons
  • None
