2-D and 3-D shapes are everywhere! You see them at school and at home, in the country and in the city, outside and inside. Once place where shapes are not only seen but also used is in a playground. Do you ever wonder who designs playgrounds? Whoever the designers are, they need to know a lot about shapes to make a great playground!
Ms. McPlayalot, the principal of your school, wants to design and build a new playground for your school, but she needs help! She has asked all the students in your class to get together in groups of two and design the best playground they can. The only rule is you must include as many 2-D and 3-D shapes as possible because more shapes make a better playground. You should be as imaginative as possible, just be sure to use lots of 2-D and 3-D shapes!
You must draw your design and then build a model of your design. The models can be photographed, and you will write a detailed description of your playground to accompany the photo of your model.
