Can You Build It? (3–5)

Narrative

Students construct and describe the structure of rectangles and rectangular prisms. 

As students describe the figures, they communicate their ideas clearly and precisely (MP6). To describe an object requires students to identify key features of the object and communicate them in an unambiguous way to their partner.
