Seeing in 3D!

Your superheroes have entered the world of 3D shapes. From cones to pyramids, we are learning about the way things around us are made up of solid figures (3D shapes) that have a variety of attributes. Three dimensional shape names can often be tricky. Practice these shapes daily with your child by pointing to common household objects and having your child name the 3D shape it looks like and why. For example, you might show them a can of soup. They would say it looks like a cylinder because it has 2 flat surfaces (or faces) shaped like circles.
You can also play the following sing-along video with your child to help him or her remember some of the most common 3D shapes:

The websites below also have some great games that help students learn both 2D and 3D shape names. Some of the activities are a little advanced and may require an older sibling or an adult to help out from time to time. Have fun!
