3D Shapes

This week we have been learning about 3 dimensional shapes and their attributes. The students are expected to know how many faces or surfaces each shape has, the number of vertices or points, the nubmer of edges, and real life examples. To practice this, the students practiced making the shapes out of playdough. They then counted the number of faces, vertices, and edges each shape had. The students also worked in cooperative groups to sort real life objects on a large thinking map.


  1. Thanks for sharing such great ideas for 3D. We aren't doing 3D until March, so I hope I remember to use them! Where did you get the graphics that the children glued down?


  2. Thank you for your comment. I found the pictures through Google pictures. I have the pictures and headings saved as a Word document and would be more than happy to send them to you. Just send me your email address and I'll get them to you. :)

  3. I am starting 3D shapes this week. Is there a way I could get a copy of these papers? I look on your blog but could not locate the items.

  4. Will you please e mail me your word doc with these 3D pics you used for the map sort? Thanks! lbillingsby@dcbe.org

  5. Love your lesson! Would you be able to e-mail the pictures to me! It's jtedonevpcs@gmail.com

  6. Love this! Can you email me the pictures? Jtedonevpcs@gmail.com
