# Already know this? Take the QUIZ!

Now that all of you know your basic shapes like a circle, square, rectangle, triangle lets move on to a little more complicated shapes.

Can you find something in around you that is a square? maybe a book?

Even though it looks like a square there is something different about it. It is THICK. It has depth. 3D shapes are not flat.

We are going to learn about five 3D shapes today.
