#### Learning Resources

Lesson Plans:

First, follow these lesson plans or use the ideas to supplement your curriculum. There are 3 weeks or 15 lesson plan ideas to cover Geometry 3D solids.

Solids Poster:

In addition, use this poster to teach learners different 3D shapes during your lessons.

Vocabulary Cards:

Also, post these cards on the math wall during the unit to refer to as new words are introduced. Shape and geometric vocabulary are available to introduce to learners.

#### Lesson Plans

Solids Poems:

To start, use these poems to introduce the solids to your learners. The beginning of the poem shares attributes that can be talked more about in whole group. In addition, the ending of the poem provides real life examples of the solids in our world.

Interactive Notebook:

During this unit, have learners complete an interactive notebook page after they are introduced to a solid figure. Working together, complete the information and glue into the interactive math notebook.

During each week of instruction, use the included story or read aloud lesson. These lessons are included to introduce your learners to a real-life situations that involve solids. Use the materials listed in the description and have your learners help you solve the problem or elaborate on a story.

Solids Lessons

Each shape lesson comes with a read-aloud text to share with your learners. Next, introduce your learners to the solids poem. After that, have learners make the solids using playdough, WikkiStix or small manipulatives. Futhermore, at the end of the lesson, discuss the characteristics of each solid.

Solids Exploration

Finally, end each week by exploring the solids with groups or partners. Follow the directions and use the resources provided for these review activities. Activities include a Solid Camera to document solids found in the school, a KWL chart to compare two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures and a class book to create and add to your classroom library.

#### Learning Centers

Math Center | Solid Clip Cards

During this center, have learners clip the solid of the real-life object.

Math Center | Solid Sorting

With this activity, have learners sort the pictures onto the correct solid mat.

Math Center | Solid Matching

Together in partners, have learners go solid shopping by matching the shopping carts by their solid.

Math Center | Solid Pocket Chart

During this activity, have learners match the pictures to the correct solid on a pocket chart.

Math Center | Solid Write the Room

In this activity, have learners look around the room for solid and draw the correct solid on their page.

Math Center | Solid Puzzles

During this center, have the learners match the solid puzzles.

## LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE

### Mathematics

CCSSK.G.A.2
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
CCSSK.G.A.3
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).
CCSSK.G.B.4
Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations.  Use 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).
CCSSK.G.B.5
Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

### Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills

TEKSMA.K.6.A
Geometry and measurement. During this study, the student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties. For example, the student is expected to: identify two-dimensional shapes, including circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares as special rectangles;
TEKSMA.K.6.D
Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties. For example, the student is expected to: identify attributes of two-dimensional shapes using informal and formal geometric language interchangeably;
TEKSMA.K.6.E
Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties. For example, the student is expected to: classify and sort a variety of regular and irregular two- and three-dimensional figures regardless of orientation or size;
TEKSMA.K.6.F
Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties. For example, the student is expected to: create two-dimensional shapes using a variety of materials and drawings.
