3D Shapes

In this video, we’re going to learn how to identify some 3D shapes in real life. This 3D shape is called a cube. The dice and the gift box are both cubes. This is a cone. Here are some real life objects which are cones: an ice cream cone and a traffic cone. This 3D shape is called a sphere. Both of these balls are spheres. This 3D shape is called a cuboid. The box of matches and the fish tank are both cuboids. This is a cylinder. The candle and the can are cylinders. And our final 3D shape is called a pyramid. This building is called a pyramid.

Now let’s try to answer some questions about everyday shapes. What shape is this? Is this shape a cube, a cone, a sphere, a cuboid, a cylinder, or a pyramid? This battery is a cylinder. What shape is this? Is it a cube, a cone, a sphere, a cuboid, a cylinder, or a pyramid? This object is a cube. This object is called a Rubik’s cube; the clue is in the name.

Let’s try one last example. What shape is this? Is this object a cube, a cone, a sphere, a cuboid, a cylinder, or a pyramid? This hat is an upside-down ice cream cone. This party hat is a cone. In this video, we’ve looked at some real life objects and identified which 3D shape they are.
