General Lesson Information
 Lesson Plan ID: 26307 Title: Searching Solid Shapes Overview/Annotation: Students will identify solid shapes and work in groups to search for solid shapes (sphere, cylinder, cube, and cone) that have been hidden on the playground. They will create a photostory about their shape to be displayed on the class's webpage.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMS-U Project.

Associated Standards and Objectives
Content Standard(s):
 CE (K-12) 6. Respect for others CE (K-12) 8. Cooperation TC2 (K-2) 10. Design original works using digital tools. Examples: tools—digital drawing tools, music software, word processing software, digital cameras MA2015 (K) 18. Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [K-G2] MA2015 (K) 19. Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid"). [K-G3] MA2015 (1) 20. Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape. (Students do not need to learn formal names such as "right rectangular prism.") [1-G2] MA2015 (2) 24. Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. [2-G1]

Local/National Standards:

Primary Learning Objective(s):

Students will identify solid shapes and work in collaborative groups to find solid shapes on the playground. Students will use a digital camera and work in groups to create a PhotoStory about their shape.  The groups will share their Photo Story with the class.
