3D shapes


Look at the 3D shape poster and discuss with children. Discuss how 2D shapes are flat and 3D shapes are fat. 


Focus on the shapes- Cube, Cuboid and Sphere. Point to these shapes on the poster and discuss them. Show and repeat vocabulary: vertices (corners), edges (sides) and faces. 


Can you find these 3D shapes in your house? use the real 3D shape poster to support this. 

- how many spheres can you find? what objects are they? what can they do?

- how many cubes can you find? how many vertices do they have? can you touch them?

- how many cuboids can you find? how many edges do they have? can you roll it?


Please just focus on these 3 shapes and the vocabulary.
