About Feel For Shapes

The goal of this game is for children to identify shapes by touching and feeling them (not looking).

What's the math in this game?

Knowing the name of a shape is just a small piece of knowing about that shape. This game helps children pay attention to the attributes that define a shape, like how many sides and vertices it has. By describing an object to others, children are building their language and vocabulary skills.
