## Activity Overview

When learning something new, it is important to have the words to describe it. This is especially true in Mathematics, where terminology is important for explaining processes, functions, and formulas. When moving from shapes to solids, students should be familiar with the terminology to describe them and the differences between the two. In this activity, students will create a visual vocabulary board for key geometry terms.

### Geometry Terms for Geometric Solids

• shape
• solid
• two-dimensional
• three-dimensional
• base
• edge
• side
• leg
• face
• vertex
• apex
• surface
• curve
• polygon
• polyhedron
• sphere
• hemisphere
• cylinder
• cone
• prism
• cube

Use words that are most pertinent to your students. Students can use storyboards to bolster or demonstrate their word knowledge. They might use a grid, T-Chart, Spider Map, Frayer Model, or a traditional storyboard layout.
