• identify, describe and classify 3-D shapes, including cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, sphere, triangular prism, pyramid
• identify, describe and classify 3-D shapes, including, cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, sphere, triangular prism, pyramid

Suggestions for use: Use the sing to introduce the many 3D shapes around us in our everyday life. After the video, pupils must create as many options as possible that are either a cone, square, rectangular, sphere or cylinder. Next task, provide straws and sellotape to every group. Each group must create different shapes using the straws given to them.

Strand: Shape & Space

Strand unit: Lines & Angles

Suggestions for use: Use the video to introduce the angles that are in 3D shapes. Pupils can create the 3 D shapes using straws and sellotape in groups. After each group create a 3D shapes. Pupils must measure the angles in the 3 D shapes using a projector. Use an animation to demonstrate how students use a protractor using Virtual Manipulation using Glencoe: https://www.scoilnet.ie/search/resource/entity/show/Lre/16808/
