5.3.6

G

- Quad Squad - describe various quadrilaterals

- Coloring 2-D sides - Use the colored portion of the 3-D object to color the correct side of the 2-D drawing.
- Cube - Find out which colors will be on opposite faces of a cube whose faces are shown unfolded.
- Guess the View - Students are given a 3-D view of an object, and then given a 2-D view of the object. Students must choose which of 6 views is being displayed from a list.
- Plot Plans and Silhouettes - from Shape and Space in Geometry - the student task is to come up with plot plans that could match the given silhouettes. Background information is available at another page .
- Point Out the View - a ten level activity from PBS Kids, students must show what 2-D view each of four viewers would see when looking at a stack of blocks
- Rotating Houses - Students are presented with a 3-D figure created with blocks that can be rotated and flipped using a mouse. The figure must be rotated until it matches a 2-D representation of one of the views.
