At Kindergarten level, the focus is on recognising 3d shapes and 2d shapes.

At 1st grade, we start identifying specific types of 3d shapes such as cones or prisms.

At 2nd grade we are beginning to name the shapes and count some of their faces.

At 3rd grade the focus turns to identifying properties such as faces, edges and vertices. We also start investigating the links between 3d shapes and their nets.
