Unit 8 Compare, Analyze and Compose 2-D & 3-D Shapes

In Unit 8 students will:

  •  Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the  relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, next to.
  •  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 their attributes (e.g.  having sides of equal length).
  • Students use pattern blocks, tiles, or paper shapes and technology to make  new two- and three-dimensional shapes. Their investigations allow them to determine what kinds of shapes they can join to create new shapes. They answer questions such as "What shapes can you use to make a square, rectangle, circle, triangle?...etc"
