Comparing Attributes of 3D Shapes!


Definition of a cubeSolid shape matching activities, math teachers-pay-teachersChildren love to sort and compare. Why not have them sort solids by their attributes. Some shapes have flat faces, whereas others have curved faces. Some can roll, others cannot. Having your students sort shapes is a great way of reinforcing the properties and laws of each shape. Check out this new sorting math center for 3D shapes. It's great for grades 2, 3 and 4!  It includes eight Venn Diagram rings, each one for a different attribute.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
