Topic-Three dimensional shapes

Â

Content:Identify object in our environment that are three dimensional shapes

Â

Examples of cubes

Â

Examples of cuboids

Â

Identify the flat faces,edges and vertices(corners)of cubes and cuboids

Â

Features of cubes and cuboids

Â

Â

Three dimensional shapes are cubes,cuboids,cylinders and spheres

Examples of cubes are cubes of sugar,cubes of maggi and ludo dice

Examples of cuboids are mathematical set,toothpaste box,match box,e.t.c

Â

The edges of a cube or cuboids is where the flat faces meet.The vertices is where the edge of cubes and cuboids meets.

Â

Features of cubes and cuboids

Cube

It has 6 flat faces

It has 12 edges

It has a vertices(corners)

It has a square face

Â

Cuboids

It has 6 flat faces

It has 12 edges

It has 8 vertices

It has a rectangular face

Â

Example

Take a cube of sugar and matchbox

Count the number of flat faces both objects have?

How many flat faces do the objects have?

The cube of sugar and matchbox both have 6 flat faces.

Â

Count the number of edges of cube of sugar and match box

How many edges do the objects have?

The cube of sugar and matchbox both have 12 edges

Â

Count the number of vertices the cube of sugar and matchbox

How many vertices do the objects have?

The cube of sugar and matchbox both have 8 vertices
