FACES Magazine July-August 2023.  Shapes are all around us. Whether found in nature or manufactured, you can make out the shapes in our world by taking a closer look.

Shapes come in, well… all sorts of shapes. Look at the fascinating world of shapes and how they’re hidden all over the place - in plain sight - if you just know how to recognize them. 


Start by looking at the state of our shapes – or rather, the shapes of our states. How many can you recognize, and what’s up with West Virginia? Then move on to shapes that are more easily viewed such as the diamond in baseball, the cone of a volcano, and the circle of a Ferris Wheel. Then, get to know the nifty shapes of noodles. And don’t miss an outstanding overview of origami!
