Learning about shapes in Foundation

This week Foundation students have been learning about 3D shapes. We know that a cube and a sphere are ‘fat’ shapes and circles and squares are ‘flat’ shapes. Today we read Humpty Dumpty and then Mrs Walsh gave us a challenge – Can we build a ‘new’ wall for Humpty?

We worked collaboratively in groups and used different materials to build our new walls. Then we tested our Humpty eggs to see if he could balance on top. We now know that if an object has a flat and straight bottom it is more stable and can balance better than a rounded bottom.
