3D Shape Construction

This week in maths Room 13 has been learning about 3d shapes. We have been experimenting with constructing a variety of complicated 3d shapes including; rhombic pyramids, dodecahedrons and truncated octahedrons (what a mouthful!!)

After we constructed each shape we discussed the number of vertices, edges and faces each shape had.

You might like to have a go a making a 3d shape yourself! Check out this website for downloadable net templates. A great rainy day task!!!
