These STEM challenge cards are perfect for encouraging children to explore 3D shapes and their attributes through hands-on play! They help develop design and building skills, problem solving and spatial awareness skills.
Two different designs have been included - one set of 12 cards with the shape named and shown + one set of 12 cards with only the shape names and the number of toothpicks and balls of playdough provided.
Just press print and grab some toothpicks and a tub of playdough and you're ready to start building.
After building each shape, children can explain their learning with our recording sheets. Three different variations are includes and ask children to draw the shape built and label the number of vertices and edges.
Shapes included – cube, triangular prism, rectangular prism, square based pyramid, triangular based pyramid, cylinder, sphere, hexagonal based pyramid, cone, hemisphere, pentagonal prism and hexagonal prism.
