3D Shapes are Fat, Not Flat!

     Recently, we have been spending some time exploring the 3-D shapes.  My students are loving a poem shared by Marlana, at Lil' Country Kindergarten!  They definitely read it with enthusiasm.  :)  Another activity was a particular hit.  We built various shapes out of marshmallows and toothpicks.  We started with one face of the shape and built up from there.  It was a wonderful way for the kids to distinguish between the flat 2D shapes, and the "fat" 3D ones.  The photos show their concentration as they are thinking through the process!
