3D Shapes Fun!

This week in math we focused on 3D Shapes!! We dug deep into learning about the attributes, names, and where we see these 3D shapes all around us! We  learned about the cube, cone, cylinder, and sphere and did lots of hands-on activities to help us learn about them.

Here is a look at some of the 3D Shape Activities we did this week:

We used our 3D shape friends to help introduce a shape each day. These were great for us to refer to throughout the week and are a fun addition to our classroom :)

We practiced writing our 3D shape names, writing about the attributes, and drawing a picture of something that the 3D shape reminds us of.




We worked on sorting 3D shapes.

We identified 3D shapes that we see in the environment.


We worked more on identify 3D shapes that we see in our environment.  We sorted pictures of shapes/shapes we see in our environment by whether or not they were the 3D shape we were focusing on.


We also made a classroom favorite... 3D Shape Hats! We sure do love any chance we can get to make a hat!


Once we learned all about the 3D shapes, we reviewed them all together!
We worked on a 3D Shape mini book.

We also had fun with a 3D Shape Flip Book.

We worked even more on identify 3D shapes in our environment with a mini 3D shape book.


And we ended the week fishing for 3D Shapes!! We just LOVE fishing in the classroom! No water or worms required :)

  1. Hi ... nice post. Great Info. As its said what you see is what you get. Visual presentation plays a major role while teaching children anything. Please go through the link to teach shapes in a more fun way

  2. Hey awesome post! Your way of teaching kids is just very edutaining and inspiring. Children love entertaining activities. We made 3D animated videos for numbers, shapes, colors and alphabets. When they are tired, bored or little lazy just play our videos, they will love it. Please go through the link, here you will find everything that a child needs to learn be it numbers, alphabets with phonics, paper crafts, clay modeling and colors
