It's a great day for exploring! We're going to find all the geometric shapes around us.
  1. In pairs, find one of the shapes on the right out in the schoolyard
  2. One partner should point at the shape, and the other partner should take a picture of it on your iPad.
  3. Then switch. Find a different shape and have the other partner point to it.

  • cone
  • cylinder
  • square
