Marshmallow Maths

After our 3D shape hunt on Monday, we decided that the best way to further develop our knowledge and understanding of 3D shapes would be to make some 3D shapes of our own. However, the children weren’t expecting to be making 3D shapes out of marshmallows and cocktail sticks! They had a fantastic time creating all sorts of shapes – cuboids, triangular prisms, square based pyramids and that’s just to name a few! During this activity, the children learnt about the properties of 3D shapes and can now confidently talk about them using the terms vertices and edges. Well done boys and girls, it was lovely to see you all having so much fun (especially when you were allowed to eat your marshmallows at the end).
