A sorting task to help students learn the difference between 2-D shapes and 3-D objects.
Use this teaching resource when teaching students the difference between 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional figures.
Students will use their knowledge to sort a set of images into two groups: 2-D shapes and 3-D objects. This resource makes a great math center activity for young students.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
