This hands-on lesson takes young geometers on a tour of 2D polygons and 3D polyhedrons. After exploring different web resources and discussing geometric shapes, small groups construct models of polyhedrons using bendable straws. Note: This resource references a 14-minute video which can be found on the web with a search.

Exploring Three-Dimensional Figures
In this exploring three-dimensional figures worksheet, 10th graders solve 111 various types of problems that include three-dimensional figures. They create a model of each figure and draw the back view for each one. Then, students identify the number and type of polygons that are faces of each polyhedron.

Classifying Three-Dimensional Shapes
Compare geometric solids based on their properties. Your emergent geometers use spaghetti and marshmallows to build models so they can examine the number of faces, edges, and vertices on polyhedra of their own creation. Resource includes worksheets, notes, a chart to record the properties of various solids, and a brief quiz assessment (with no answer key).
