Getting into Shapes

Math is always more fun when you use food.  This week we have been learning about two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes.  After learning about vertexes, edges, and faces, we decided to make some three-dimensional shapes.  We used mini marshmallows for vertexes and toothpicks for edges.  We made several shapes, and learned why we could not make others.






I also read one of my favorite books to the class about angles.  I just love this book!  I found a copy of it on YouTube read aloud too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE0yle-z5uE
