### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, you must identify the correct shape.

CUBE and CUBOID

A cube has 6 square faces.

A cuboid has 6 faces, some of which are rectangles.

PRISMS

Prisms have a flat base and faces that go straight up.

The top face is the same as the base.

A triangular prism has a triangular base and top, with upright faces.

A cylinder has a circular base and top, with upright faces.

CONE

A cone has a circular base and rises to a point.

PYRAMID

A square based pyramid has a square base and rises to a point.

SPHERE

A sphere is like a round ball.
