Abstract

In this study, an activity was designed to teach the third grade content standard "identifies the surfaces,
vertices, and edges of cubes, square prisms, rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, cylinders, cones and
sphere models" within the "Faces and Surfaces of Geometric Objects" topic. The activity aimed to
support active learning by having students construct models of cube, square prism, rectangular prism,
triangular prism, cylinder, cones and sphere. The learning-teaching process was based on active
learning and demonstration-performance. The activity was carried out with 22 students. It was
observed that the students enjoyed their time in the activity process. All the students managed to build
at least two models. The level of students’ achievement of the purpose of the activity was assessed
through the “Checklist for Level Identification." The assessment revealed that all students performed
at a "good" level.
