Most Year 6 students are very familiar with three-dimensional shapes and their features. They are easily able to identify these shapes in the environment. They know that a three-dimensional shape has depth, height and width.
The question then is “how can students show what they know?”
Make a stop motion video!
Year 6 were challenged to create a video to show what they knew about prisms and pyramids. They had to show the unique features of each shape in a creative way. It proved to be a popular activity, with a lot of great results.
What did you find out about 3D shapes? Do you think that you were successful in showing what you know about the features of a 3D shape? Di you clearly identify them?
