In this camp, students will “play” with the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes.  Students will strengthen their vocabulary and understanding of shapes and spatial relationships through small group explorations, center-based learning, and whole group discussions and projects. Students will use many fun and unique materials to construct their own three-dimensional figures. Students will also play a variety of games that enhance their logic and reasoning skills with geometry and number sense.

Students attending should... be able to name basic two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes and understand the difference between two and three-dimensional objects.
