Your child can explore shape, size, pattern, volume and measurement with these invaluable hands-on tools. Smooth wooden shapes include sphere, cube, cylinders, pyramid, prisms, plus more.
What we learn:
A 3D shape is a geometric figure that has three dimensions, width, depth and height. 3D shapes differ from 2D shapes because they have thickness. Children of primary age should develop and be taught an understanding of the patterns and properties of shape. Which should include being able to do the following:
- Describe properties of shapes that they can see or visualize using the related vocabulary,
- Observe, handle and describe common 2-D and 3-D shapes; name and describe the mathematical features of common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including triangles of various kinds, rectangles including squares, circles, cubes, cuboids, then hexagons, pentagons, cylinders, pyramids, cones and spheres,
- Create 2-D shapes and 3-D shapes
- Recognize reflective symmetry in familiar 2-D shapes and patterns
