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.

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.
