Making 3 Dimensional Shapes in a Center

My 5 year old granddaughter recently used an I-Pad application to make different Playdough creations that featured step-by-step photos. That gave me the idea to create a series of photos that could guide Kindergarten students or 1st Grade students to create 3 dimensional shapes independently in a math center.

So I created the above series of photos for my granddaughter, let her work independently, and this is what happened...
I saved a copy of the series of photographs in my Google Docs so you can use it in your center. Click here to view or download it.

 In addition,consider using a series of photos directly on your I-Pad that the students would view step-by-step and create their own shape  OR have them create another 3-D shape and take photographs of each step as they create the 3-D shape.

For older students, they could add written directions for each step. This would be an authentic writing assignment.

Have fun... Ella and I certainly did!
