Address & Directions


Make two sandwiches from bread slices shaped like squares. Cut one sandwich in half to make two triangles, and cut the other into two rectangles. What differences does your child notice? Count the sides together and explain that the three-sided shape is a triangle and a four-sided shape is a rectangle. What a fun way to play with your food and make it brain food!

You're helping your child learn about the features of triangles (three sides) and of rectangles (four sides with right angles). When your child understands these concepts, you can play a guessing game that helps him/her remember the features of these shapes, "I am thinking of a shape that has three sides. What is it?"
