Learning 3D shapes just got WAY cooler! These engaging, hands-on 3D shape activities teach kids about cones, cubes, cylinders, hemispheres, hexagonal prisms, pyramids, rectangular prisms, spheres and triangular prisms.
They’re great to use as math centers or math lessons in kindergarten, first grade or second grade.
Peek Inside 3D Shape Activities
Inside the kid-approved pack, students learn about the parts of 3D shapes with a helpful poster identifying faces, edges and vertices.
Three interactive flap books challenge kids to draw each shape, identify real world objects containing the shape and then put their new knowledge to the test by writing its number of edges, vertices and faces.
They build and read paper models of six shapes: a cone, cube, rectangular prism, cylinder, square pyramid and triangular pyramid.
Kids match real world objects with their corresponding shape on a set of 27 clip cards.
Children spin a paper clip, name the shape it lands on and color it on the graph as they race to see what shape will reach the top first.
And they practice naming and identifying shapes with a fun round of 3D Shape Bingo. (There’s a class set of boards!)
