2D and 3D shapes that roll or slide

We had lots of fun with shapes today.
We had to name squares, rectangles, circles, triangles and hexagons and we had to find out which shapes roll, which shapes slide, and which do both.
Next we tried with our 3D shapes: cube, cuboid, cylinder, sphere, triangular prism, hexagonal prism, cone, triangular pyramid and square pyramid.
We discovered that all the shapes which rolled had circles in them.
Shapes with corners slide very well but don't roll!
