Prior to this lesson, students should have worked with two-dimensional shapes. Additionally, they should have been introduced to three-dimensional shapes and their attributes with the lesson "Guess My Shape".
In this lesson, students will use a variety of materials to build shapes and use math vocabulary to explain their shape.

I am an elementary math coach who is currently co teaching with a kindergarten teacher for math. These lesson is perfect to add to our plans for next week when we begin our transition from 2D to 3D shapes.
Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged. Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource. Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure (students progress or mastery) of the specified standards.
I appreciate how this lesson requires the students to build a 3D shape on their own with little to no assistance from the teacher. They have the choice to use the 2D shape they created first or start from scratch. It is easy to find materials for students to build with too.
Opportunities: You could have students integrate technology by creating a Flipgrid of their shape and describing it's attributes to classmates.
