Little Red Riding Hood

We have been looking at 3D shape. To help us to learn the names of the shapes -and their properties- we went on a shape hunt around the school.

We talked about the sticks acting as the edges and the marshmallows acting as the vertices (or corners). We also counted the amount of faces. We watched as squares came together as faces on cubes, rectangles became faces on cuboids and as triangles became pyramids.
