Objective

Students will be able to combine three-dimensional shapes to make a three-dimensional whole using Geoblocks.

Overview of the Lesson

Students are introduced to three-dimensional shapes as they use Geoblocks to explore geometric concepts. Students use smaller Geoblocks to build congruent three-dimensional figures. They continue geometric investigations using interlocking cubes as they build cube buildings and make connections between numerical and geometric relationships.
