LO: To recognise 3D shapes
Today we are going on another shape hunt but, this time we are looking for 3D shapes! Complete the table below by looking around your houses for objects that match the different shapes. Keep a tally of how many you find and record the different objects you find...
LO: To count faces on 3D shapes
Today we are looking at faces! Shape faces. You will be able to recognise lot of the 2D shapes in the 3D shape faces, but can you count how many faces the different shapes have? Watch the video to find out some strategies to help.
LO: To count the edges on 3D shapes
Edges are where 2 faces meet. Today we will learn strategies to count the edges. Remember, when looking at 3D shapes on a sheet, there are edges on the back that we sometimes can't see...
LO: To count the vertices on 3D shapes
Today we are going to get hands-on to learn about the vertices on 3D shapes. It would be really useful if you have any of the following or similar:
Straws, pencils, pens, lollypop sticks or mechano
Play-doh, blu-tack, modelling clay or tape
In this investigation, you will be creating 'skeleton shapes' to demonstrate how many vertices the different shapes have. Take a look here:
