Everything you need to teach about 3D shapes is found in this illustrated tutorial booklet. From definitions and real world examples to a nets folding activity. Shapes featured are cubes, cuboids, spheres, cylinders, cones, triangular pyramids, rectangular pyramids and triangular prisms.
The nets provided have been created with and without flaps for your students. Use the nets with the flaps to make durable models (print on card Bristol board paper). The nets without flaps should be used for investigating the attributes of each shape Allow students to number each face, cut each net into individual 2D shapes to see how these 2D shapes attach in such a way that they form a 3D Shape. The final page contains a table for students to record the number of faces, edges and vertices on each 3D shape from the folding activity.
