Exploring 3D Shapes

3D Shapes

3/4J in Maths this week we are tackling understanding 3D shapes. I found a really cool song and video clip to take a look at. When we watch the clip see of you can think about all the names of 3D shapes and we will make a list on the board.

Today we will also learn about Maths words such as vertex and vertices, edges and corners.

3/4J take a look at the pyramid in the bottom picture. I would like to challenge you to see of we could build something like this to represent a 3D shape. What materials will we need? How would we build it? Would we need teams or groups?
