This matching activity encourages understanding of 3D shapes and their properties. Students match the shape to it's name, properties of number of faces, vertices and edges, and a 2D net of the shape.
18 shapes are included; Sphere, Cube, Cuboid (2 versions), Square Pyramid, Cylinder, Cone, Regular Tetrahedron, Hexagonal Prism, Triangular Prism, Irregular Pentagonal Prism, Hemisphere, Square Based Frustum, Conical Frustum, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron, Irregular Tetrahedron and Octahedron. There is an additional set included that contains wire versions of the shapes to save on ink.
To differentiate, simply print the shapes that you require.
The puzzles are made to fit an A4 sheet per puzzle, great for floor work or for displays. However, if you wish to make the puzzles smaller, simply print 4 or even 6 to a page.
This is also available as our matching bundle, where you can get it with 4 other matching activities for the price of 3.
