# 2D and 3D Shapes

# Revise shapes using the links below.

# LO: Name and describe the features of 3D shapes.

# TASK 1

You are going on a 3D shape treasure hunt to find as many different 3D shapes around the school as you can.

- Work in pairs.
- Photograph the objects.
- Describe them using mathematical vocabulary. (Remember the properties of shapes.)
- Record the information. (Object, 3D-shape, Properties)
- Share with the class

# Here is an example.

# Task 2

**When you look around your world, either at home or school, virtually everywhere you go, you will find a variety of shapes surround you. As I look around my room I can see many shapes. For example, the clock is a circle, the drawers on my cabinet are squares, the table I am sitting at is a rectangle, the tiles on the floor are diamonds, the roof on the building across the street is the shape of a triangle and right here on my laptop there are sooooooooooo many different shapes- squares, circles and rectangles!**

**Identify an object in your environment, determine it's shape and write a riddle to describe it.**

Your classmates will then try and guess the answer by responding to your post and you, in turn, will need to respond and let them know if they are right/wrong.

# I see this object in my yard by my neighbour's fence.

My dogs and cats know to stay away from it.

I am amazed that an insect could construct this amazing home.

Can you name the object and it's shape?
