3D Shapes in Prep

In Prep we have been learning about three dimensional shapes – 3D. We looked for 3D shapes in the classroom. We found cylinders – candle, glue stick, crayon, cup, container, stamper and a string roll

We discovered our class room was full of many different 3D shapes.

What 3D shapes can you find at home or at work? Tell us about them.

  1. Hi Preps,
    I used a can of coconut cream to cook with tonight. It was a solid cylinder when full with both ends covered. Then I took the lid off and emptied it. Is it still a cylinder now it is hollow?

  2. Hi Mrs Clark
    We think you were trying to trick us but we know that the can is still a cylinder even when it is empty. It is still a cylinder because its shape has not change. Thanks for your comment.
