Shaping up with Shapes

photo 1Over these last few weeks, students have been playing with, discussing and making shapes. They’ve learned to discuss shape properties using geometric language and put together their learning in a presentation.

Shapes demand some hands-on play, and studentsphoto 3 have made 3-D shapes using nets, blocks and sticks and clay. They’ve also put together a presentation of their learning. It’s shaping up to be a great end of the year!
