Being able to notice the different shapes that makes an object is a foundation for more developed capabilities in Geometry, Computer science, Art, Reading, Writing etc. Therefore, this time, we played with 2D and 3D shapes to create our unique scene.
In the Cube game we:
Hunted for shapes. The kids found a triangle in the letter A.
Completed shapes puzzles.
Switched from 2D to 3D and vice versa by examining boxes and paper.
Examined how a car is combined from different shapes
In the adventures of Chili and the mice, the mice asked themselves how to combined slices of cheese to escape from Chili. This led the kids to the exploration stations.
Lots of creativity in the 2D station.
Lots of creativity in the 3D station.
We also created a cube of shapes to play at home.
Look how beautiful our scene of shapes came together.
Next time it’s the last one for this round. We will play with Gravity!!!
