Solid Figure Patterns

Solid figure patterns are a valuable resource when teaching a unit on geometry. The patterns are easy enough for younger students to put together and a great teaching tool for both primary and upper elementary students.

How to Use the Patterns
Select the pattern(s) you want to use. (For younger students, enlarge and photocopy the patterns onto cardstock or construction paper.)
Have the students color each face (flat surface of the shape) a different color.
Model cutting the pattern on the solid line and folding on the dotted line.
Monitor and provide help to the students.
Each pattern requires three pieces of clear tape. Place three pieces (approximately 1 1/2” long) on the students’ desk.
Model assembly the pattern, one step at a time. (Some of the students will immediately have an “Aha!” moment. Have these students help classmates who are having difficulty.)
Once the students have assembled one shape, the remaining shapes will be easier to do!

Suggested Order
Start with the easier patterns first, and then move
on to the more challenging patterns.
Cube
Rectangular Prism
Pyramids
Cone
Cylinder

Questioning
After the students have assembled each shape, ask them
the following questions:
How many edges does the shape have? (An edge is formed when two flat surfaces meet)
How many vertices (corners) does the shape have? (A vertex is formed when three (or more edges) meet to form a point or “corner”.
How many faces does the shape have? (A face is the flat surface on the shape.)
