1. Have a student come to the front of the room and face the class. Have students explain they are looking at a front view of the student. Discuss how what students see will change from a front to a side or back view.
Guide
2. Distribute the
graph paper and
colored pencils to
the students. Build
a simple shape
out of a few snap
cubes. Hold up the
shape and show it
to students. Explain
that they will draw
pictures of what
they see for each
different view of the
snap cube shapes.

3. Place the shape under Luna. Bend Luna down and show students a front view. Take a snapshot of the view. Have them color in squares based on what they see in the image presented by Luna. Have students label their drawings front view.
4. Have students
watch as you move
Luna to the side of
the shape. Students
color in squares to
match what they
see and label the
drawing. Repeat
this process for
several views,
including the top.

5. Have students
pass around the snap cube shape and compare
it to the corresponding views they generated on graph paper. Discuss their levels of accuracy.
Assess
6. Have students place their diagrams under the Luna, along with the snap cube shape. Students take snapshots of their drawings and the shape for assessment and documentation.
Extend
7. Have students make their own snap cube shapes and make slideshows using pictures or video clips taken with Luna. Have other students draw the views and try to recreate the shape on their own based on the views.
