Investigating 3D Solids

 Today the students further investigated 3D Solids. We began by reviewing the names of the 3D Solids and their characteristics. Next we put the 3D Solids into a bag and had the students feel them with their hands, describe them and finally guess which solid it was. We had a great discussion about how the solids felt (curvy, straight, points, faces etc). Students also did a great job describing why it could be certain solids and why it could not be other solids.


Students continued to guess 3D shapes during centre time. Miss Alannah brought out her iPad and the students had fun using the app "Solids Elementary" to look at nets of shapes and find the wooden version of the shape in our solids bin.
