LI: To apply your knowledge of 3D Shapes
Using your knowledge of three dimensional shapes, you are going to create a castle! Your masterpiece will be created out of 3-D shapes made from paper in the classroom using nets. Below are the requirements for your castle. If you choose to do more of one of the shapes that is fine, but you have to use at least what is required below.
- 3 cones
- 5 rectangular prisms

It’s always a good idea to have a plan before the main event so draw out your castle below making sure you include all the 3-D shapes you are going to need to create your masterpiece. Underneath, tally up how many shapes you are using.
