Faces of Three Dimensional Objects - Grade One
Three dimensional objects are not flat! Young learners explore 3-D shapes and their many faces. Have them find some of the 3-D objects in their environment, such as: spheres, rectangular prisms, cones, cubes, cylinders, and pyramids. Then they can sort, draw, and identify shapes based on the number and arrangement of their faces.
