Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to think of creative ways to describe the polyhedron.
Imagine a polyhedron that is neither a prism nor a pyramid. Describe how it might look.
Possible student responses
- It could look like a prism, but with bases that are not congruent.
- It could look like a “twisted prism,” or like a pyramid, but without a “point” at the top.
