Building Shapes

Students already understand the basics of architecture thanks to legos and other building toys, so it will be a breeze to teach them about different building shapes. To help students understand the terminology associated with their favorite shapes, give them the following worksheets that they can draw on, literally, to introduce new vocabulary. If your classroom has objects that can be used to create examples, even better!
