King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success


Friday 29th January

Make a collection of 3D shapes from your home, such as a tin of food (cylinder), ball (sphere) dice (cube), cereal packet (cuboid) ice cream cone (cone). Make a simple ramp. Look at the different objects. Do you know the names of these 3D shapes? Which shapes do you think will roll down the ramp? Test the shapes by placing them at the top of the ramp. Which shapes have curved surfaces? Which shapes have flat faces? Which shapes rolled? Why did they roll? Why didn't these shapes roll?
