This challenge that we did last week, was to build a castle using prisms, pyramids, cones and cylinders. The students worked in small groups to complete their castles. Once done, they were asked to draw their castle in their math journals and create a table to show what shapes they used and how many of each.
It looked like this:
16 prisms + 4 cubes + 6 cylinders + 2 cones = 28 shapes.
