Visualizing the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing a three-dimensional figure can be challenging for some students. The following are two visual supports:
?
Justine has a block of cheese in the shape of a square prism, as shown below.
She cuts the block in half.
What are two different two-dimensional faces that could result from Justine slicing the cheese in half?
A right rectangular pyramid is shown below.
Describe how the following two-dimensional figures can be created by slicing the pyramid.
?
The following resources include problems and activities aligned to the objective of the lesson that can be used to create your own problem set.

Misha has a cube and a right-square pyramid that are made of clay. She placed both clay figures on a flat surface.
Misha will make slices through each figure that are parallel and perpendicular to the flat surface. Which statements are true about the two-dimensional plane sections that could result from one of these slices?
Select all that apply.
