This 3D shapes puzzle is a fun way to test students recognition of 3D shapes, complete with their properities. Students match the image of a shape with the name, its properties of number of faces, vertices & edges, and a possible net.
18 shapes are included: Sphere, Cube, Cuboid (two versions), Square Based Pyramid, Cylinder, Cone, Regular Tetrahedron, Hexagonal Prism, Triangular Prism, Irregular Pentagonal Prism, Hemisphere, Square Pyramidal Frustum, Conical Frustum, Dodecahedron, Icosehedron, Irregular Tetrahedron and Octahedron.
Two versions are included; one where the 3D shapes are solid, and another where the 3D shapes are wire frames so students can see the number of edges etc. This is also a good option for using less ink when printing.
It is designed to be easily cut with little wastage. So either the teacher or tutor can prepare the cards by cutting them before hand, or students can cut their own cards, giving them a chance to see the solutions before they attempt the puzzle.
Although this product is made in colour, it prints perfectly well in black and white.
