What are 3D Shapes?
Three-dimensional shapes are objects that have length, width, and height. They are also known as solid shapes.

#### Slide 4 -Slide

This slide should introduce the concept of 3D shapes and provide students with a basic understanding of what they are.
Faces
The flat surfaces of a 3D shape are called faces. Each face is a polygon.

#### Slide 5 -Slide

This slide should focus on the concept of faces and provide examples of polygons that can be used to create them.
Edges
The line segments where two faces meet are called edges.

#### Slide 6 -Slide

This slide should focus on the concept of edges and provide examples of how they connect faces of a 3D shape.
Vertices
The points where three or more edges meet are called vertices.

#### Slide 7 -Slide

This slide should focus on the concept of vertices and provide examples of how they represent the corners of a 3D shape.

Types of 3D Shapes
There are many types of 3D shapes, including prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres.

#### Slide 13 -Slide

This slide should provide examples of common 3D shapes and introduce basic vocabulary associated with each shape.
Prisms
Prisms are 3D shapes with two parallel and congruent faces called bases. The other faces are parallelograms.

#### Slide 14 -Slide

This slide should focus on the properties of prisms and provide examples of real-life objects that are prisms.
Pyramids
Pyramids are 3D shapes with one base and triangular faces that meet at a single vertex.

#### Slide 15 -Slide

This slide should focus on the properties of pyramids and provide examples of real-life objects that are pyramids.
Cylinders
Cylinders are 3D shapes with two congruent circular bases and a curved surface that connects them.

#### Slide 16 -Slide

This slide should focus on the properties of cylinders and provide examples of real-life objects that are cylinders.
Cones
Cones are 3D shapes with a circular base and a curved surface that tapers to a single point called the vertex.

#### Slide 17 -Slide

This slide should focus on the properties of cones and provide examples of real-life objects that are cones.
Spheres
Spheres are 3D shapes with a curved surface that is the same distance from the center at all points.

#### Slide 18 -Slide

This slide should focus on the properties of spheres and provide examples of real-life objects that are spheres.

Identifying 3D Shapes
To identify a 3D shape, you need to look at the number of faces, edges, and vertices it has.

#### Slide 24 -Slide

This slide should provide students with a strategy for identifying 3D shapes based on their properties.
Interactive Activity
Use the virtual 3D shapes tool to explore the different properties of 3D shapes.

#### Slide 25 -Slide

This slide should provide instructions for a class activity that allows students to explore 3D shapes in a virtual environment.
Can you find….
Can you find a 3D object in your school that has either:
(a) More faces than edges
(b) 0 edges
(c) The same number of faces as vertices

Write down 2 things you learned this week.

#### Slide 31 -Open question

Have students enter three things they learned in this lesson. With this they can indicate their own learning efficiency of this lesson.
Write down 1 things you want to know more about.

#### Slide 32 -Open question

Here, students enter two things they would like to know more about. This not only increases involvement, but also gives them more ownership.

#### Slide 33 -Open question

The students indicate here (in question form) with which part of the material they still have difficulty. For the teacher, this not only provides insight into the extent to which the students understand/master the material, but also a good starting point for the next lesson.
