Geometry: Geometric Solids
Updated: Apr 7, 2020
In both classrooms children explore geometric shapes in various ways (e.g. the many beautifully traced and colored metal inset shapes many of you have certainly received). We also teach them about three-dimensional geometric solids which help them classify shapes they frequently encounter both inside and outside the classroom. It is easy to use these shapes for a fun activity at home. For example, use the attached sheet of geometric solids and review them with your child. Invite the child to color each shape and to help you search the home for products or objects that are shaped like the solids (e.g. dice= cube, canned food= cylinder, ball=sphere, egg=ovoid, ice cream cone= cone, aluminum foil container = square prism, etc).
