Five Geometric Solids

This week we introduced two more geometric solids.  The children can work with these anytime they wish but we introduce a few at a time to help remember the names.  Last week we learned: cone, cube and cylinder.  Most of the children remembered the names.  This week we introduced sphere and pyramid.  After given a lesson on the vocabulary, we have the children pick a solid and try to find on in our environment.  We were successful in finding a match for each one except that pyramid!
To take this concept a little further, the children can play a matching game with cards.  Here they place cards into columns matching the solid.  This gave us a chance to learn more about real pyramids!
