Space and 3D Shape: Describing 3D Shapes
This Describing 3D Shapes lesson encourages your class to describe 3D shapes in detail. They will be challenged to recognise how many faces, edges and vertices various 3D shapes have. The lesson also looks at examples of objects that are the same shape as the shapes they have been describing, such as balls (spheres), sugar lumps (cubes), candles (cylinders) cases (cuboids) and many other examples.
