2D Shapes & 3D Solids Central!

This afternoon, all 3/4 students were engaged in creating 2D shapes and 3D solids, by using a variety of mathematics, construction and craft materials.

The mathematical understandings we are investigating are:

  • Describing and drawing two-dimensional shapes
  • Describing the features of three-dimensional objects
  • Making models of three-dimensional objects
  • Comparing and describing two dimensional shapes that result from combining and splitting common shapes
  • Connecting three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-dimensional representations (some students were making their own nets!)
