Math in Action. 3-D Geometry Comes in All Shapes and Sizes.
Bresser, Rusty; Sheffield, Stephanie
Instructor, v106 n3 p106-07 Oct 1996
Two mathematics activities introduce elementary students to geometry, using depth, width, and height. A primary level activity involves students with sorting and classifying geometric solids and with comparing numerical quantities. The activity requires building blocks or geometric solids. An intermediate level activity teaches students about solid shapes, using boxes of different sizes and shapes (including cylinders and cubes). (SM)
