Shapes Computer Center

3-dshapesMy students are currently studying 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes.  So, during math centers, our critical thinking/computer center has been this cool website from Primary Resources to help them identify 3-dimensional shapes even when they see them from different angles or without the entire shape.  This concept can be hard for my students, but this great website that shows partially buried and angled 3-dimensional shapes really helped.  shapebook
It’s been a great way to review this concept, and I reinforced it with this little shape booklet.  Students took the booklet home and searched for items in their house that were certain 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes.  The booklet is a great way for them to see that a can of green beans is also a cylinder!  Grab a free copy of the booklet from Google Docs to use with your class if you’d like.
