Solid Figures/ 3D Shapes- Grade K-1
Task Cards: Solid Figures/ 3D Shapes
Grade Level: K
Activity: Students identify 3D shapes. Students will identify shapes based on number of "flat surfaces" and "vertices."
Common Core: K.G.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. K.G.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three dimensional (“solid”). K.G.4 Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length). 1.G.2 Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape. Students do not need to learn formal names such as ―right rectangular prism
