This week we have explored the features of 3D shapes. We have learned a lot of language to describe and name 3D shapes including edges, faces, curved surfaces, vertex/vertices and prisms.
Can you remember what all prisms have in common? What are some differences between prisms and pyramids? What is a net?
If you are having trouble answering these questions or remembering all the meanings of the different features you could make yourself a 3D shape dictionary using the online Maths dictionary to help:
Now for a challenge…
Can you work out what 3D shape I am thinking of? Here are the clues:
I have 5 faces. None of my faces are curved. I have 5 vertices and 8 edges. One of my faces is a square. What shape am I?
If you know the answer, leave a comment and post your own set of clues for the next person. Or you could write your clues on the mystery bag: 3D guessing game and bring it into class to share.
