Lesson Plan: 3D Shapes Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to identify, name, and draw three-dimensional shapes and recognize their properties including their number of faces, edges, and vertices.
Students will be able to
- visualize 3D shapes—namely, prisms, cubes, cuboids, tetrahedrons, pyramids, cylinders, cones, spheres, and hemispheres,
- recognize the properties of 3D shapes, including those of their faces, edges, and vertices,
- use isometric paper to draw 3D shapes made from cubes.
Students should already be familiar with
- the names of 2D shapes.
Students will not cover
- nets of 3D shapes,
- volume and surface area.
