In my classroom I would use this activity to develop a better understanding of 3D shapes in the world around us. We would spend time discussing 3D shapes as a class and then I would have students either take a digital camera around and take pictures of the different types of 3D shapes we discussed. If students had a difficult time finding certain shapes, I would have them look for pictures on the internet to add in their presentation. After this I would have students use Animoto or some other similar site and create a slideshow of the different shapes they found in the world around them.Students would then share their videos on their blogs and with the class.

Here is the link to sample I completed.
