G.2: identify shapes (sphere)

Get out in the snow (or bring some inside) and see how many spheres you can make.  What makes a sphere different from a circle? (hint, circles are flat)  What else can you find that is the shape of a sphere?

***If you don’t want to go out in the snow, challenge your child to make a sphere out of playdough, aluminum foil, OR paper.  Try the activity linked to the side and have your own paper “snowball fight” inside.  Before making the snowballs, add letters, numbers, shapes, colors...whatever you wish to make it an academic review.  Have FUN!!!
