This is a great website that explains how to find whether two shapes are congruent (the same) through transformations:

## Toy Sculpture Project

### Posted by lisar | Posted in 2D Shapes, 3D Shapes | Posted on September 18, 2015

This project allows students to develop their understanding of 2D and 3D shapes. They are required to design their own sculpture, list the shapes they will need, document the features of both 2D and 3D shapes as well as making 3D shapes using nets.

## String of 2D or 3D shapes

### Posted by MrsMatthews | Posted in 2D Shapes, 3D Shapes | Posted on December 3, 2014

Fun shape activity that incorporates 2D and 3D shapes.

Students create different shapes using coloured paper, label the features of the shape (edges, vertices, faces, corners) and sticky tape them to a piece of string.

As seen on pintrest:

## Tooth Picks and Chickpeas

### Posted by lisar | Posted in 2D Shapes, 3D Shapes | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students use chick peas and toothpicks to create 2D or 3D shapes by carefully pressing the toothpick into the chickpea to join the toothpicks together.

Students can then record the name of the shape they created, and its features such as edges, faces and vertices.

## Venn Diagram

### Posted by lisar | Posted in 2D Shapes, 3D Shapes | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students select two shapes from a bag of flash cards then use a Venn Diagram to compare the two shapes.

## Shape Who Am I?

### Posted by lisar | Posted in 2D Shapes, 3D Shapes | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students create a shape Who Am I? poster by writing clues about a 2D or 3D shape onto a poster then drawing a picture of the shape and labeling it underneath the clues. Students then paste a kinder square over the picture a label so that it flips up.
