    Hi, I've just read a blog about the cone and cylinder debate dated back to July 2020. Boy oh boy do we like to make things much harder for our kids when we as adults have a difference of opinion on whether the cone and cylinder have faces or surfaces. I do want to ask about edges and wonder why on the cone and cylinder you don't list edges?

      Hi Jennifer! This is because we are using the understanding that the middle part of a cone and cylinder is a surface, and not a face. Because the definition of an edge is where two faces meet, and cones only have one face they can't have an edge, and the faces of a cylinder don't meet so, therefore, cannot have an edge either. I hope this helps!

    Thank you for another great resource! I'm just wondering whether the correct title on the poster should be '3D Objects' rather than '3D Shapes'? The file name says 'objects' but the poster says 'shapes'. :)
