A 2 Dimensional Look at 3 D Shapes

During our study of 3 dimensional shapes, after reading several books about solids by Tana Hoban, we traced the faces and bases of each solid to discover what 2 dimensional shapes they are made from. To keep track of which faces we had already traced and to keep a count of how many faces each solid had, we used sticky notes. We separated the 2 D shapes for each solid by drawing a box around them and coloring them all one color. See the photos above. The kids were very interested in seeing how many of each kind of 2 D shapes made each solid. They were very engaged and had a lot of fun.
