3 - Dimensional Shapes

For the past 2 weeks, we have been learning all about shapes. What makes them 2-D verses 3-D has been a hot topic. Today, we constructed a few different 3-D shapes and discussed what a vertex, edge & face was. Here is our chart that we made as a class:

As an extracurricular assignment, have your child watch this video. Then, on a piece of paper, have them write 3 things that they have learned about Pyramids. Then, ask them to tell you the difference between a square pyramid and a triangular pyramid. You can sign their paper stating that they completed this. As an award, have him / her bring the paper back to class in exchange for some tickets!
