What educators are saying

Was really good in the sense that it allowed the students to see/feel what a vertex is, corners, etc. I just had the students cut and I taped the shapes together for them.
My class really enjoyed making these 3D shapes. I love how they had different options for each of the shapes, ones with the information and real life examples that they could colour! Thank you

3D Shapes have never been so much fun! Building these shape nets allow students to create 3D shapes that they can engage with, making learning memorable. There are 5 different options for each of the seven 3D shapes, including an editable version for you and your students to customize.

Students cut out their 3D shape nets and use tape or glue to assemble and create a concrete version that they can manipulate.

3D Shapes Included in this Resource:

  • Cube
  • Cylinder
  • Rectangular Prism
  • Triangular Prism
  • Pyramid
  • Triangular Pyramid
  • Cone

Types of 3D Shape Nets Included:

  • 3D shape nets with information about the shape on each side.

- the sides of the shapes show examples of the 3D shape, the number of sides,

vertices, and edges as well as other information.

  • 3D shape nets with fill-in-the-blank information about the shape.
  • 3D shape nets that create real-life examples of the shape.
  • Blank 3D shape nets for students to write/draw on.
  • Editable 3D shape nets for you to customize in any way you choose.

Also included:

- A chart activity for students to record 3D shape attributes.

- A cut and paste worksheet for curved surfaces/no curved surfaces on 3D Shapes.

- 2 color code worksheets - Color the 3D shapes by the code

You are going to love the wide variety of options included. There are tons of shape nets for you to choose from when designing your 3D shapes lessons. They are a great way to add some hands-on fun, to your math lessons.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Dara said "My students loved making these and it was great for all students to be able to hold each shape to see the faces, vertices, and edges for themselves!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Sharon said "This was a fun and creative way to introduce our topic on 3D shapes. It will look very attractive hanging on display in our classroom. It will also be a useful reference for the shapes, when needed. It was a hands - on way to consolidate the 3D shape outcomes. Thank you so much."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Aimee said "Wow! The students loved creating these shapes. We used a variety of the different styles so they had exposure to the vocabulary, real world connections, and lots of fun!"

Enjoy your 3D shape building fun!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).
Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
