Building 3D Shapes

This morning, we explored 3D shapes, thinking about their properties and the 2D shapes we could see on their faces.  After that, we tried to build them using straws and plasticine.

We then learnt about nets of 3D shapes and Ms Boxall challenged us to draw nets of cubes and other 3D shapes.  We only found out if our nets were accurate when we tried to build the shapes.

Later this week, we are going to use this learning to help us build our prototype models of the inventions we have been designing.
