### Cross-Sections of 3D Figures MATCHING ACTIVITIES

Cross-Sections of 3D Figures MATCHING ACTIVITIES is a unique educational resource created for Grade 7 math educators, focusing on their geometry curriculum. Designed to promote comprehension and visualization of three-dimensional objects, this tool aligns with the CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.G.A.3.

This comprehensive package includes two engaging matching activities:

1. Matching Directional Terms: In this activity, learners are given various drawings that depict a plane section slicing through a 3D figure. They're tasked with naming which directional term best describes the slice (options include horizontal, vertical, and diagonal cuts as well as slices that are perpendicular or parallel to the base).
2. Matching Cross-Sections: Herein students are assigned three-dimensional figures alongside descriptions of how these figures would be sliced by a plane section; they must then determine what shape would emerge from such an act.

The digital download for each activity features an optional linkage to Google Forms implementations for easy access flexibility and come complete with answer keys for swift progress verification by teachers.

Note: Due to specific standard guidelines excluding circles from this particular segment in geometry study - circular figures aren't covered within these activities.

#### Purposeful Application

The Cross-Sections of 3D Figures matching games POSSESS versatility in application types and can function effectively when utilized either during whole-group classroom sessions or even individually-assigned tasks handled at home.
Additionally these resources can be especially beneficial when splitting classes into smaller units during breakout room sessions; offering an interactive aspect whilst maintaining adherence to core curriculum standards.

## What's Included

This resource contains:

1) Cross-Sections MATCHING ACTIVITIES:

Activity 1: Matching Directional Terms - Given a figure of a 3D figure being sliced by a plane section, students will identify which directional term(s) describe the slice (Horizontal, Vertical, Diagonally, Perpendicular to the Base*, & Parallel to the Base*)

Activity 2: Matching Cross-Sections – Given a 3D figure and a description of the slice of a plane section, students will choose the general shape of the cross-section.
