Help your student become a(n) 3D Prototype Recognizer
Everyday experiences, play with blocks, and small group activities and all wonderful ways to introduce and use the mathematical names for 3D shapes. For example, "sphere" for balls.
Practice-based Research: Boxes are solid (three-dimensional) shapes called rectangular prisms. Their faces are rectangles. As a square is a special type of rectangle with all four sides the same length, a cube is a special type of rectangular prism in which all faces are the same square.
