Goal: Give children opportunities to identify by name common geometric solids. The purpose of this activity is to provide practice in this skill, so encourage mathematical language. Do not accept terms such as “this one” or “it” when playing this game. Find small items that represent each of these: cube, rectangular solid, sphere, prism, pyramid, cone, and cylinder. Block sets, kitchen drawers, and hardware/tool “catch-all” drawers in your home are good sources to check when looking for these items. Put a few of the items in a basket or box and allow children to draw one out, eyes closed. The child should try to identify the chosen item by touch and feel. When the child has guessed correctly another child can have a turn. Increase complexity by placing more items into the box.
