2D and 3D objects recognising, naming and sorting
This guide provides a sequence of small steps for exploring shape, from recognising and naming 2D and 3D objects, sorting and exploring patterns with shapes and objects. Note in this resource objects are often referred to as 3D shapes. It is advised to use the terminology 'objects' when talking about 3D and not 3D shapes as suggested in this resources.
