In Maths today we will be investigating patterns by building houses along Storey Street. [Levels of a house are called ‘storeys’, not stories :-)] Then we will be picturing the 3D objects made from 2Dnets. These activities will allow us to practise picturing the 3D object from the 2D nets.
Now just for fun:……. test yourself on what view you are looking at!
1. VIEWS 1 – pick out the piece you are looking at
2. VIEWS 2 – another quiz
3. GUESS THE VIEW – best quiz to end off.
Have fun working these out – it’s all in the way you look at things….. 😎
We use nets of shapes to make up a model of a 3-D object. Click on 3-D OBJECTS to explore what they look like. Explode them, drag them, spin them and have a look at their nets. Have fun! 😎
Here are some games which will help you to learn the names of the different 3D objects. Try to work out how many faces and edges and vertices (corners) too.
3D OBJECT SONG – this is a song which tells you about 3D shapes
SOLID OBJECT FACTORY – learn the names of 3D objects in this game
NAME THE 3D OBJECT – a fun game guessing from the faces each shape has
Then stick your names onto your 3D objects on your sheet and use texta to colour in the base of each shape (Pyramids) and the side which gives it its name (Prisms). Then hand it in. 😎
