# Exploring 3D Shape Patterns in the Classroom

## Introduction to exploring 3D shape patterns :

In this lesson, students will learn about 3D shape patterns and practice identifying and creating their own patterns using three dimensional objects. By the end of the lesson, students will understand the concept of a pattern and how it is created using 3D shapes.

## Demonstration to exploring 3D shape patterns :

To start the lesson, the teacher will place a can, ball, and cube on the table and then place another set of the same shapes next to it. The teacher will then ask the students what they observe and take their responses. The teacher will then explain that this is a pattern and ask a student to come forward and place the next shape in line. The students will be asked how they know it is a pattern and the teacher will explain that a pattern means that something is repeating itself in the same manner as it is done before.

Next, the teacher will introduce the topic of 3D shape patterns and ask the students to identify patterns in the image provided. The teacher will then go through each pattern, asking the students which shape comes next. The class will be divided into groups of two and each group will receive a page with the shapes. The students will then use these shapes to create their own patterns, cutting and pasting them into their notebooks.

## Conclusion to exploring 3D shape patterns :

By the end of the lesson exploring 3D shape patterns, students will have a hands-on understanding of 3D shape patterns and the concept of repeating objects in a specific order. This lesson provides a fun and interactive way for students to learn about patterns, making it a great addition to any mathematics or art curriculum.”
