Explore Right Prisms and Their Cross-Sections

Right prisms and their cross-sections… Many teachers would agree that this topic is one of the more obscure within the Geometry curriculum! If you’re struggling to find resources to support you in teaching this concept to your students, then you’ve come to the right place!

This set of task cards has been designed specifically to provide your students with practice in identifying right prisms and their corresponding cross-sections. It asks the students to complete tasks such as:

• Which prism is this? Draw a diagram of the cross-section.
• Which prism does this cross-section belong to? Draw a diagram of the prism.
• Draw a diagram of the prism below, and its cross-section.

• 1 x instruction page
• 3 x student recording sheets

Multiple Applications for These Right Prisms Task Cards

This versatile resource can be used in multiple ways in your classroom. Why not try some of the following suggestions:

• Whole-class warm-up
• Small-group rotations
• Targeted intervention groups
• Fast finisher challenge

If you’re feeling brave, why not use the task cards for a game of SCOOT? Place the cards around the room, then have the students move to each card in turn. This is a great way of adding some movement into your day while still teaching the curriculum!
