How To Teach 3D Shape in the Early Years

Hands-on ideas and printables for teaching young children 3D shapes.

Years ago I wrote about the most effective ways to teach shapes and build spatial awareness in the Early Years at school. 

Much of what I wrote then is still true today in schools. Young children need repeated hands-on play with different 3D objects to understand them and they need clear, accurate information from their teachers to avoid the confusion between surface or two dimensional shapes and three-dimensional shapes that exists in many young children.
