Properties of shapes
Our online students have been learning all about the different properties of shapes.
The students got to learn that a corner on a 2D shape is called a ‘vertex’ and the plural is ‘vertices’.
In the first task, they counted the vertices on various familiar 2D shapes.
In the second task, children got to spot the odd one out in groups of shapes by looking at the different numbers of vertices the shapes have.
Questions were given to the students to encourage reasoning and discussion.
These helped strengthen children’s abilities with describing the properties of shapes.
