Our Math n’ Munch series for the Kindergarten and 1st Graders continued on this past Monday by sharing the picture book called, Shape Space by Cathryn Falwell.

We discussed the various 2D shapes in the story and then worked together to decide what each of the 2-D shapes would be if they were 3-D shapes.  The children did some hands-on shape exploration with tangrams and some wooden 3D figures. We followed up by using our plentiful amount of leftover Candy Corn to create shapes of our own!
