Prisms & Pyramids 17 Oct 2018

Do you know the difference between a prism and a pyramid? We spent a whole lesson working this out and coming up with ways of remembering which is which when identifying shapes. We also used maps to orienteer our way around a course to name shapes, then we made tricky shapes using marshmallows and cocktail sticks. The marshmallows represented the vertices in each 3D shape and the stickers became the edges. It was great fun and when we were successful we got to scoff the marshmallows- yummy!
