Exploring 3D Shape

Year 1 have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes. They enjoyed constructing their own 3D shapes using marshmallows and toothpicks. They were asked to look closely at the number of edges and vertices needed for each shape and also to discover which shapes could not be made with these materials and why.

Amazingly no marshmallows were actually eaten during the construction stage but there was some finger licking taking place!!!
