Help your students become super confident (See what we did there?) in their ability to recognize and name familiar three-dimensional shapes with this engaging set of dominoes.

Perfect for maths rotations, fast finishers, or as a whole-class review activity, this versatile resource will have your students naming all the most common 3D shapes in no time!

## How to Play 3D Shape Dominoes

To play 3D shape dominoes, follow these simple steps.

1. Split the dominoes evenly between the players.
2. Choose a player to lay the first domino.
3. Player 1 lays a domino on the playing surface.
4. Player 2 places a matching domino at either end of the domino on the playing surface. If they do not have a match, they must await their next turn.
5. Play continues in this manner until one player has no dominoes left!

Note: Due to the variety of match options, not all dominoes may be placed in the line in any one game.
