6. Clue: “I drew a shape with four
sides.”

Draw four examples of what this shape
might look like.
Answers will vary. Examples: square,
rectangle, trapezoid.

7. Clue: “I drew a shape with six
sides.”
Draw two examples of what this shape might
look like.
Answers will vary.

8. What is the difference between a
circle and a sphere?

A
circle is 2D and a sphere is 3D, or a circle is flat and a sphere
can roll like a ball.

9. I’m thinking of a 3D shape. It
has six faces. Each face is a square. It looks like a box. What
shape am I thinking of?

The shape is a cube.

10. Pretend the box below is a piece of
folded paper. Draw a folded shape on it. In the second box, draw
what the shape would look like if you cut it out and unfolded it.

Answers will vary.

11. Use words to describe a cylinder.

This shape has two faces that are
circles. This shape can roll. It is like a soda can or pencil
container. This shape does not have any vertices.

12. What is the name of a shape with
five sides?

A pentagon.
Performance
Assessment:

Find the number of edges, faces, and vertices of a cube
and a pyramid with a square base.

 Cube: edges ____ faces ____ vertices ____

 Pyramid: edges ____ faces ____ vertices ____

 How are the two shapes the same? How are they
different?

Performance
Assessment Scoring Rubric:

If possible, provide 3D models for students to refer to.
 Find the number of edges, faces, and vertices of a cube and a
pyramid with a square base

 Cube: edges 12 faces 6 vertices 8

 Pyramid: edges _8 faces 5 vertices 5

 How are the two shapes the same? How are they different?

 Answers will vary.

Both shapes have a square face. Both shapes are 3D. The cube is
made of squares, but the pyramid is made of squares and triangles.
The cube has more edges, faces, and vertices than the pyramid. The
cube has sides that are straight up and down, but the pyramid has
slanted sides.
