Flat shapes in Year 1

In Year 1 the children have been investigating flat shapes. The children experimented with rods and modelling clay to construct polygons. The children are much more likely to understand shapes if they construct them themselves. Take a look at the pictures and see if you can name the shapes they made.

By the way, here is an interesting fact,  did you know that the word "polygon" comes from the Greek words  πολύς (polús) "much",  and γωνία (gōnía) "corner"
