I would like you to go on a shape hunt in your house and garden today.

Bring all the shapes together and sort them into groups.

Different ways you could group them could be 2D or 3D, all edges are straight, all edges are curved, number of faces, edges or vertices (corners).

Can you describe the shape to an adult?

You could put the shapes in a bag then describe one without them seeing it- can they work out which shape you are describing?


2D shape names: Square, Oblong, Triangle, Circle, Pentagon, Hexagon, Octagon.

3D shape names: Cylinder, Sphere, Cube, Cuboid, Cone, Pyramid
