#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning to recognise 3D shapes using their properties.

Here are some 3D solid shapes.

Cube

Cuboid

Square-based pyramid

Triangular prism

Hexagonal prism

Here are some words we use when we describe 3D shapes:

Face = the flat parts

Edges = the straight parts which join the vertices

Vertices = the corners

Let's try a question to get us started.

Example

How many faces are there on a cube?

A cube has 6 faces.

They are all squares.

Now it's time for you to try some questions about 3D shapes yourself.
