2D and 3D Shapes

Revise shapes using the links below.

LO: Name and describe the features of   3D shapes.

TASK 1

You are going on a 3D shape treasure hunt to find as many different 3D shapes around the school as you can.

  • Work in pairs.
  • Photograph the objects.
  • Describe them using mathematical vocabulary. (Remember the properties of shapes.)
  • Record the information. (Object, 3D-shape, Properties)
  • Share with the class

Here is an example.

Task 2

When you look around your world, either at home or school, virtually everywhere you go, you will find a variety of shapes surround you. As I look around my room I can see many shapes. For example, the clock is a circle, the drawers on my cabinet are squares, the table I am sitting at is a rectangle, the tiles on the floor are diamonds, the roof on the building across the street is the shape of a triangle and right here on my laptop there are sooooooooooo many different shapes- squares, circles and rectangles!

Identify an object in your environment, determine it's shape and write a riddle to describe it.
Your classmates will then try and guess the answer by responding to your post and you, in turn, will need to respond and let them know if they are right/wrong.

I see this object in my yard by my neighbour's fence.
My dogs and cats know to stay away from it.
I am amazed that an insect could construct this amazing home.
Can you name the object and it's shape?

Write your answer in the comments below.

Write your riddle on the Padlet Wall.

Task 3

Create a short 2 or 3 minute presentation about shapes.
Describe the shapes that you used in your model of your colony.

Here is an extra activity for you. Try out the 'Tangram Challenge'
