Our class has been busy learning about flat and geometric shapes. Did you know there are shapes all around us? We have practiced finding shapes in pictures and in objects all over our classroom. We traced shapes that we found in magazines and then we went on a scavenger hunt. We even found shapes in the white house! Next, we compared flat and geometric shapes and we even got to trace and count the edges, faces, and vertices with play-doh! When we explored the shapes even further, we discovered which ones can stack, slide, and roll. We are also learning how to use words to describe our shapes like faces, edges, vertices, round and straight. Watch our videos to learn more.
