3D Shape Overview: Students spend one class period exploring shapes via the Web Warm Ups (above) then "vote" on their favorite game. Next, they practice moving files as they drag and drop a template (3D Shape worksheet) to their desktop and into the application called Kidspiration. Students show what they know about 3D shapes by completing the worksheet which asks them to find images of real world 3D shapes. They are also introduced to the application Kidspiration which includes sticker galleries, speech and delete tools. Finally they are exposed to printing on a school network printer.
