Wacona Elementary School first graders have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. Mrs. Carol Reed’s class learned how shapes are used in every facet of their lives. There are shapes all around us, in our homes, at our school, and in our community. Students learned that foods have different shapes, such as oranges shaped like a circle, brownies shaped like squares or rectangles, and pizza cut into triangles.
After discussing many types of foods, the class decided to make pizza. The students were put into groups to make different types of pizzas using pepperoni shaped like circles, cheese cut into rectangles, and ham cut into cubes and squares. They cut the cooked pizzas into triangles. They enjoyed learning about shapes they could eat!!! Mr. Chancey is the principal of Wacona Elementary.
