These are work sheets that re-enforce the knowledge of 3-D Shapes – Specifically pyramids and prisms (What makes a prism? What makes a pyramid?)
Each pages features a 3-D shape.
Students need to name each shape, and subsequently must justify WHY they think the shape has that name.
(E.g. It’s a triangular prism because it has many rectangular faces and 2 triangular bases. It’s a hexagonal pyramid because it has many triangular faces and one hexagonal base.)
There is a box of geometry-related vocabulary that will help students explain themselves. (Obviously, they may wish to use other words, but the list is fairly extensive, and covers the basics.)
Shapes included are:
prisme à base carrée
pyramide à base rectangulaire
pyramide à base triangulaire
pyramide à base carré
pyramide à base pentagonale
pyramide à base hexagonale
pyramide à base octognale
I have first graders who can do this, but it would be beneficial for students up to fourth grade.
