Extension Menu Directions Pick 2 choices to work on. Color the boxes in as you complete the tasks. 1. Recognize shapes of solid figures that have been pressed into clay.
2. Use plane shapes to build a collage.
3. Identify geometric shapes in the environment.
What shapes can you make in the clay with these solid figures? Which figures make more than one shape?
4. Observe differences in the direction of an irregular shape after a slide, a flip, or a turn, is performed with it. Does the shape look different?
5. Create 5 different shapes, either solids or flat by using modeling clay and toothpicks.
