Good morning, happy Thursday!
Today, I have some maths activities for you looking at 2D shapes:
You could also try these practical activities:
Can you find something that is:
Pentagon (remember, this has 5 sides)
Hexagon (remember, this has 6 sides)
Octagon (remember, this has 8 sides)
A different shape altogether
Find 10 different objects (these could be toys, shoes, leaves, twigs - anything!)
Can you see any shapes in your objects?
Can you sort your objects by colour?
Can you order your objects by size?
Can you make a pattern from them?
What is the same/different about these 2 objects?
Can you estimate how many of your objects will fit in your pocket/hand/a box? Were you right?
Can you make a label for the different groups you have made?
Make/find some 2D shapes and hide them in a bag or behind your back. Describe one of the shapes for an adult to guess - think carefully about how many sides and corners it has and whether the sides are curved or straight.
Draw a picture of your house using only 2D shapes.
What else can you draw using 2D shapes? An animal? Yourself?
Have a lovely day!
