Moriah Kindergarten Learns About Pyramids

As part of their discussions about the beginning of Sefer Shemot, The Moriah School kindergarten students have been talking about the pyramids built in Egypt so many years ago. They took a good look at the shape of a pyramid, and discovered that it is not flat; rather it has sides and is puffed-out, meaning it is a solid and has depth. The topic of 3-D shapes as opposed to 2-D came up. The class examined familiar shapes and observed that some shapes (square/cube and circle/sphere) are similar in some ways and different in others. The students partnered up and each pair of children created an original 3-D structure. Working cooperatively, some interesting and unusual buildings evolved. Future architects, perhaps?
