Shape in 3/4W

For the past couple of weeks, 3/4W have been learning about shape. We have learnt that:

  • Polyhedrons are 3D shapes that have flat faces and can stand up.
  • Pyramids have an apex and triangular faces that meet at a point. They can stand.
  • Spheres have no faces but they have a curved surface.
  • Equilateral triangles are triangles with all the same size angles.
  • Squares are a special type of rectangle because they have 4 right angles, like a rectangle. But rectangles are NOT squares.

 

 

 

We also entered the Victorian Coding Challenge by producing some shapes using Scratch. Have a look at some of the things we made!

What other things do you know about 2D or 3D shapes?
