2D and 3D shapes and objects

3D Shapes


In this lesson students use classroom objects to become familiar with the differences between 2D and 3D objects. The lesson includes two captioned online videos on each dimension. As an extension students can bring in an object from home for a 'show and tell', identifying its shape within the presentation.

If computers with Internet access be available, an online shapes game can be played.
