Are You Smarter Than a 5th (or 4th) Grader?

 Miss Powless’ grade 4/5 class at OMSK recently created their own geometric solids.
They were able to design, build, name and describe their shapes.
 Here, some students proudly display their design, 
along with their label sheet of how many vertices and faces
each shape had, along with the shape of the base.

 Another assignment had them construct 
three dimensional shapes from a net.

 Can’t quite make this next photo rotate properly.
But with 3D shapes, does it matter the orientation?
What great work this class did.
Even more impressive was their ability to describe
their shape orally using precise mathematical terminology.
Way to go, Miss Powless!!
