How would you change the shape of of these dumplings? What could you use instead?
My head looks so small today and my legs don’t look that long in the mirror. What’s going on?
We’ve been exploring the variety of shapes we can make with our dough.
See if you can work out how I made this shape.
How would you describe all the different shapes and surfaces you can see here?
I was wrapping up my dad’s birthday present. I laid his birthday blanket square on the paper so the edges of the blanket and the paper were side by side; parallel.
However, when I pulled the edges of the paper over the blanket to stick one over the other, there was a gap! I didn’t have enough paper!
How did I solve the problem? Why don’t you try wrapping something up and see if that helps you work out the answer?
What would you do with your dough;
What else could you do?
Someone designed this bench. They thought long and hard about who was going to use it and how they were going to use it.
Have a think about the decisions they made and why they made them.
I keep on wondering about why the seat slopes downwards at the back.
I know exactly what this means when I see it painted on the road. But no bike I’ve ever ridden has oval wheels!
Have a think about how it would feel to ride a bike with oval wheels. What could you use to help you work this out.
And then have a think about why someone would paint a bike on the road with oval wheels.
There’s no one riding my bike so how is it staying upright?
Do you see lines or a spiral or something else altogether?
Where else would you find this shape?
How and where could you make the shape you see?
