Face painter: finding faces 1
Students identify polygons on a range of prisms and polyhedra such as a cube, square pyramid or triangular prism. They mentally picture all sides of a solid, and estimate how many faces the object has. They then rotate it to see all of its faces, and paint each face of a given shape such as a triangle or rectangle.
