  3. Maybe something about predicting which shapes will roll or slide down a slope, and why?
    Or find how many squares are need to build a cube (using waffle blocks or something similar)?
    Along the same lines select the right pieces of paper to build a 3D shape eg cone, cylinder, triangular prism?
    Give properties of shape and ask children - what shape am I describing?
     
  4. Have you looked at Tangram? It's an old 2D shape Chinese puzzle...would be great to coincide with Chinese New Year too.
    Basically
    the children have to make a certain set pictures from 7 specific 2D
    shapes - they are only given the black outline - if that makes any sense
