Students then took cut outs of plane shapes to compose pictures in their math journals. Students counted the different number of triangles, circle, squares and rectangles in their creative pictures.

Our shape creating fun led us into a great discussion about the 2D and 3D shapes we see at school, at home and all over the world. Our easy button is really a cylinder but has a face of a circle. The orange tissue box is a rectangle prism with 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices!
What shapes do you see around you?
