# Shapes in Our World

### Collaborative Technology Project by Mrs. Casteel's Class

## Solid Shape Scavenger Hunt

After learning about geometry and the attributes of solid shapes, we got a special assignment to use our classroom iPad to take pictures of solid shapes that we see every day at school. These are the shapes that we found.

## Ice Cream Cone This is a cone because it has one flat circle face at the top and one half circle wrapped around the bottom half that makes one vertex. By: Judah | ## Globe This is a sphere because it can roll and it has no edges, faces or vertices. By: Chloe | ## Fish Food This is a cylinder because it has a rolled up rectangle with two flat circle faces on each end. By: Tres |

It can roll like all spheres can. By: Keeghan |

## Shape Winner: Rectangular Prism!

When we looked around, the shape that was most popular was the rectangular prism. We think that this is the most used shape because it easier to build things with rectangles than other shapes such as triangles. It is also easier to stack things on top of each other if they are shaped like rectangular prisms. We also think that it is easier to pack and store things that are rectangular prisms instead of cones, pyramids, cylinders, or spheres.

## Projector This is a rectangular prism because it has rectangular sides and it is a 3-D shape that can stand up. By: Merritt | ## Laptop This is a rectangular prism because it has rectangle shaped faces on all sides. By: Skylar | ## Nook This is a rectangular prism because it has the shape of a rectangle on each side of the nook and it has a height that makes it 3-D. By: Isaac |

## Fish Tank This is a rectangular prism because it has 6 faces, 8 edges, and 12 vertices. By: Nicholas | ## Defibrillator This is a rectangular prism because it has rectangles on the sides even though it has a square face on the front and back. By: Latracia | ## Books This is a rectangular prism because it has a rectangle that is on the front, the back, and all the sides. It has a height too. By: Camryn |
