MONDAY 27TH APRIL

MATHS ACTIVITY - MONDAY MADNESS!

GEOMETRIC HUNT

Last week and this week, we have been learning about shapes in Maths. Today we would like you to go on a 'GEOMETRIC HUNT' around your house or garden. We would like you to find as many objects as you can and name their 2D shape. They could be circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons or octagons. Don't forget other quadrilaterals too such as rhombuses, parallelograms, kites and trapeziums. Create a table to record your findings like the one below.

When you have finished, you could find ways of sorting the shapes. What would your criteria be? Which is the most common shape you have found around your house?
