At the beginning of PBL, “Ms. Trowbridge read us a poem about 3-D shapes.”  (Giovanny)  “We talked about the three parts of 3-D shapes.  They are edges, vertices, and faces.”  (Ximena)  We counted the vertices, edges, and faces of the shapes on the poster.”  (Tatiana)

“Ms. Trowbridge had a bag of 3-D shape pictures, then she called names and we decided under which figure the shape should go.”  (Jadine)  For example, “there was a picture of an orange, a volcano, a mountain, earth, a jar of jelly, and a book.”  (Johana)

One of our deliverables for this project is to build a monster or animals using 3-D shapes.  Today students, “practiced building our monsters or animals.”  (Yaritza)  Building of the animals will start tomorrow.  “I’m excited to make a monster.”  (Jay)  “I feel good about building a shape monster.”  (Pedro)
