#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be looking at nets of cuboids

The net of a 3D solid is the shape that needs to be cut out of cardboard or paper to fold into the given shape.

A cuboid can have square and rectangular faces.

It always has six faces.

All of its angles are right angles.

Let's try an example question.

Example

Will this net make a cuboid?

Our net shows two square faces and four rectangular faces.

All of its angles are 90°.

So, yes! Our net will fold into the following cuboid.

Let's have a look at some more nets.
