- Discussion Questions
Before Video
What is the difference between a 2D shape and a 3D shape?ANSWER2D shapes are flat and 3D shapes are solid.
Students may note the color and size of the shapes. Students should note that all of the shapes are triangles.
No, the shapes are all triangles.
These shapes are all flat and closed with all straight sides.
A straight line has no bends or curves. It follows a ruler or index card if you line one up with it.
After Video
What is an attribute?ANSWERAn attribute is something you can notice about a shape.
A defining attribute is an attribute that a shape must have.
A square has all of these attributes.
Size and color are not defining attributes, so I can draw any shape.
Glue sticks, soup cans, and soda cans.
