## What Are the Properties of 3D Shapes?

Once your students can successfully recognise and name the most common 3D objects, it’s time to move on to teaching them the properties (features) of these geometric figures.

3D shapes such as prisms and pyramids have similar properties. These include:

• Faces – flat surfaces
• Edges – the lines formed by two meeting faces
• Vertices – the points where two or more edges meet.

The number of faces, edges and vertices of a 3D object will vary from shape to shape.

## Colour the Picture by Naming the Object!

This worksheet has been designed to provide your students with practice naming various 3D objects and identifying their features. By answering questions correctly, students are given colour clues that will assist them to correctly colour in the picture provided. Further instructions are outlined below.

1. Read each question carefully. Choose and circle one of the answer choices.
2. Based on your choice, colour the picture accordingly.
3. When done, you may colour the rest of the picture any colours you’d like.

## Multiple Applications for This 3D Shapes Worksheet

This versatile resource can be used in various ways in your classroom. Here are some suggestions for how you might like to use this activity:

• Whole-class activity (via smartboard)
• Independent practice
• Homework assignment
• Summative assessment
