Hi there shape spotter!
When you can see something from above, it is called a bird’s eye view.
It is called this because it is what a bird would see if they were flying above it and looked down.
Have a look at this 3D shape.
In this picture, you can see some of the sides and top of the shape.
Can you match it to the view you would get from above (the bird’s eye view)?
a) b) c) d)
The answer is b.
The image has been rotated slightly from the original, but it is still what you would see from above.
Option c looks very similar and is what the shape would look like if it had been turned over.
However, we are looking for the bird’s eye view of the original image only.
Take care not to be fooled by options like this!
Here's a handy hint to help you reach superstar status:
Think about which faces are visible from above and then match the 3D shape to its bird’s eye view.
Let’s get started and engage our bird’s eye!
