Pacing Activity 1: Show each solid figure and name it. Discuss the characteristics of each solid. Which has no flat surfaces, curved surfaces. (Text pg. 434-437)

Cone
A solid figure with a base that is a circle and a curved surface that meets at a point. (p. 434)
Cube
A solid figure with 6 congruent squares as its faces.
cylinder
A solid figure with two congruent circular bases.
 Rectangular Prism
A solid whose faces are all rectangles. 
 Square pyramid
A solid figure with a square base and four faces that are triangles.
Triangular Prism
A solid figure with two bases that are triangles and the other three faces are rectangles.
Rectangular Pyramid
A solid figure  with a rectangle for its base and triangles for all other faces.

Pacing Activity 2: New words:

plane figure - a figure with only two dimensions(length and width)
solid figure - a figure that has length, width, and height
face- a flat surface of a solid that does not roll.
edge - a line segment where two faces of a solid figure meet.
vertex - The point where two rays meet. The point where the sides of a polygon meet. The point where three or more edges of a solid figure meet. (plural - vertices)

Pacing Activity 4: Review of Solid Figures

face- a flat surface of a solid that does not roll.
edge - a line segment where two faces of a solid figure meet.
vertex - The point where two rays meet. The point where the sides of a polygon meet. The point where three or more edges of a solid figure meet. (plural - vertices)
 
 
 Explore polygons - make shapes/count faces, edges, vertices
 Examples of vertices

Toothpicks
Connectors - with hollow straws, you can use paper clips or thick pipe cleaners, bent and stuck inside the straw ends to connect two or more together.  With toothpicks you can use clay, play dough, mini-marshmallows, or small jelly beans as connectors. Make shapes and count the faces, edges, and vertices.

Pacing Activity 5:Characteristics of Polygons

Polygon - a closed plane figure made up of line segments. Each line segment is a side.  The point where the sides meet is called a vertex.
