I believe in learning through making, discovery and personal projects. Children learn best when they are invested in what they are learning and discovering for themselves.
This shapes course allows children discover the concepts of 2d and 3d shapes for themselves - with a little help along the way. Children are introduced to the different 2d and 3d shapes, sides, edges, vertices and nets. They are then asked to design 2-3 space rockets; using what they've learnt about shapes (see intro video).
The lessons involve a lot of "learning by doing". The video describes what the child needs to discover or make, then, lets the child learn for themselves. Sometimes a concept is explained in the video and then explored more offline.
