Welcome to Maths Builder "3D Shape". This resource is a series of PowerPoint slides designed to be used each day as a warm up activity to revise, embed and extend skills and concepts within maths.
This particular element of "3D Shape" focuses on how children can use and develop their knowledge of 3D shape in order to describe 3D shapes by using the language of shape (faces, edges, vertices, planes), identify 3D shapes when represented in a 2D form, and identifying 3D shapes by their nets. At each step, the children are expected to justify how they know the shape by using language and observations. For example, "I know it is the net of a cube as each of the six faces are squares, and they are laid out that when folded, will create a cube."
INSPIReducation have used all of the resources from the Maths Builder range within the classroom and have seen a huge impact in the development of mathematical skills, and as a result, a deepening of maths understanding as well as confidence in the areas focused upon.
Because these resources are designed to be a short, daily activity, children can't forget skills and concepts taught to them weeks before. Instead, regular "reviews" using Maths Builder, keeps the skills and concepts fresh in the minds of young learners. It allow the children to see links between different areas, particularly as these activities can be linked to the topics of the day, and warm the children up to maths before the main objective of the lesson.
The resources have been designed to make life easy for the busy teacher. Once used, it takes minutes to review each slide. (For the 3D shape presentation, to avoid children learning the order of the slides, move them around day after day to keep the learning fresh.) You therefore know that you are fully resourced and prepared for your next lesson, targeting specifically on the needs of the children within your group. Once purchased, you can use this resource over and over again, and see the impact immediately on the learners in your care.
Please see the preview to find out what this resource includes. We hope you purchase and enjoy using a wide range of activities from the Maths Builder range - devised by INSPIReducation.
