Good Ideas for 3D Shape
The activities in this book from Polygon Resources focus on shape and space. They are particularly designed to give students experience of designing and making solid objects and time to consolidate their ideas about solid shapes and their properties. Many of the activities require practical equipment such as interlocking cubes and activity tiles.
Making solids leads from identifying solids and their properties to Euler's rule.
Straw models involves building skeleton cubes and cuboids and determining volumes either by filling with cubes or calculation.
Cube pieces investigates plane symmetry.
Multilink Pictures uses plans and elevations to produce models.
Posting box asks students to produce a 3D shape to fit into cutouts.
Skeleton models investigates shapes that can be made from specific numbers of paper strips.
Design a box poses a problem of packaging table tennis balls.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
