If you're "facing" the challenge of teaching your kiddos about solid shapes, try this simple discovery center. My center included a set of plastic solid shapes, black markers, crayons and paper. The children traced the faces of the 3D shapes to discover the 2D shapes.
We displayed their work with this chart.
