3-D Shape Sort
From the apple on your desk and the coffee cup in your hand, to the cabinets along the classroom wall, basic three-dimensional shapes are found everywhere in the world around us. Introduce young mathematicians to the these common figures...
We All Scream for Ice Scream
High schoolers explore the formulas for volume of three-dimensional objects. They participate in various activities involving ice cream, ice cream cones, small candies, and gum balls, recording their calculations on a lab sheet.
Two-Dimensional Drawings from Three Dimensional Objects
Sixth graders identify and replicate two dimensional illustrations of three dimensional objects. In this spatial visualization lesson, 6th graders practice viewing objects from various sides. Student participate in stations to view...
Draw 3 Dimensional Objects
Bring three-dimensional shapes to life in your classroom. First introduce the vocabulary of three-dimensional shapes, such as sphere, cube, and pyramid. Then, show your kids examples of how to use two-dimensional objects draw...
Creating with an app is nice. But, creating with an app and being able to print and use your creation is great! This tool provides the opportunity to hone the skills related to spacial awareness, three-dimensional thinking, creativity,...
Vectors and 2-D Motion
Continue the journey into the world of physics as you lead your class on a winding road complete with vectors and scalers. Pupils learn more about motion, direction, and velocity as they use these concepts to explore two- and...
Math - "Solid Shapes" - Comparing 3-D Objects
In this geometry worksheet, students learn about 3-D objects and how to describe them. They then answer 10 questions using the information they learned. The answers are on the last page.
Visualize 3-D Objects and Make Nets of Common Solids
In this 3-D objects and common solids worksheet, students cut out and count the number of faces on several different types of boxes and make a cuboid from straws or a card. Students fill out 4 different categories involving 5 different...
Mathematics Assessment Project
Representing 3-D Objects in 2-D
How does the shape of the surface of water in a container change as water leaks out? After tackling this question, learners take part in a similar activity with more complex figures.
Fourth graders view and identify three-dimensional figures. They analyze and discuss various figures, build three-dimensional figures, and complete various worksheets and worksheet discussion questions.
North Carolina State University
Expose youngsters to 3-D objects in a hands-on learning activity involving marshmallows and toothpicks. Engage your young mathematicians by introducing them to 3-D shapes by means of a story book. Explore 3-D shapes by manipulating...
A collection of two lessons, kindergartners will identify two-dimensional shapes in solid shapes. They will develop basic knowledge of the components that make up a sphere, rectangular prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone, and cube. Young...
In this geometric solids worksheet, students examine 4 different solid shapes then record the number of faces, the number of edges and the name of each shape.
Building With Triangles
Fourth graders use two different techniques to construct triangles with specific dimensions. They determine how to construct nets for three-dimensional objects focusing on those made with equilateral triangles. They are able to name the...
Utah Education Network (UEN)
Candies R Us
A box is fun to make, especially when it's a candy box! These activities help to cement understanding of the difference between surface area and volume. Have individuals measure the surface area of their box in two-dimensions before...
Virginia Department of Education
Surface Area and Volume
Partners use materials to wrap three-dimensional objects to determine the formula for surface area. The groups use an orange to calculate the amount of peel it takes to completely cover the fruit. Using manipulatives, individuals then...
Mathematics Vision Project
Module 5: Modeling with Geometry
Solids come in many shapes and sizes. Using geometry, scholars create two-dimensional cross-sections of various three-dimensional objects. They develop the lesson further by finding the volume of solids. The module then shifts to finding...
Applied Science - Science and Math Lab
Create three dimensional objects in an applied science lesson plan. The goal is for your class to recognize, compare, and model shapes. Using cookie cutters and clay or play dough, they create models for three-dimensional shapes.
It's About Time
Center of Mass
Lead your class on an exploration as they locate the center of mass in several oddly shaped two-dimensional objects they create from their imaginations. Pupils also determine the location of the center of mass in three-dimensional...
Seeing in 3D: Interpreting Two-Dimensional Diagrams of Three-Dimensional Objects
Young scholars hone in on their skills at reading diagrams. In this dimensional lesson plan students collect information on the functions of organs then figure out how all the parts work together.
Two-Dimensional Drawings from Three-Dimensional Objects
Sixth graders identify and draw two-dimensional representations of a three-dimensional object. Students investigate the views of an object and determine that three views are required (front, one side and the top). Students use these...
Nets, Plans, and Elevations
A dimensional resource teaches viewers to recognize 2-D views of 3-D objects and how to match nets with their 3-D figures. Individuals draw different views of three-dimensional objects including views from the front, side elevations and...
Surface Area and Volume of 3-D Objects
Don't let the class tank the project. After reviewing formulas for surface area and volume, pupils design fish tanks that maximize volume. They research cost of materials online and must meet a budgetary constraint when creating their...
Faces, Vertices, Edges
Young scholars identify the parts of three dimensional objects. In this geometry lesson, students find the number of faces, edges and vertices. They differentiate between prisms and polyhedra.
