## What Are 3D Shapes?

3D shapes are special shapes that look like they pop out and can be touched and held. They are not flat like the pictures we draw on paper. 3D shapes have three dimensions: length, width, and height. Some examples of 3D shapes are a ball, a cube, a pyramid, and a cylinder. These shapes are all around us in real life, like the balls we play with, the blocks we build with, and even the ice cream cones we eat.

## The Definition of 3D Shapes

3D shapes are an aspect of math taught in geometry. They can be defined as a solid figure that has three dimensions (length, width, and height). Three-dimensional, or 3D shapes, are unlike two-dimensional, or flat shapes because they look different depending on what direction you are looking at them from. 3D shapes are also measured or described in volume.

## 3D Shape Charts

3D shape charts feature a fun and engaging way for students to visualize 3D shapes. These colorful anchor charts can be used as early as as resources in primary classrooms settings.

## 3D Shapes Charts

Free, printable anchor charts that are perfect for use in kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade classroom environments. These worksheets feature realistic designs, including cones, pyramids, rectangular prisms, and more! Students learn to describe the shapes using vocabulary words like face, vertices, and edges.

## Ways to Teach 3D Shapes

Teaching 3D shapes to your students can be fun and engaging. Start by introducing the concept of 3D shapes, explaining that they are special shapes that have length, width, and height. Use real-life objects like balls, boxes, and cones to help students visualize 3D shapes and let them touch and feel them. Play games, like scavenger hunts or matching games with flashcards, to practice identifying and naming 3D shapes. Provide hands-on opportunities for your students to explore and build their own 3D shapes using building blocks or modeling clay. Reinforce learning with multimedia resources such as videos or interactive apps. Finish with a 3D shape show-and-tell where your students bring in objects or models they’ve made to share with the class. By making the learning interactive and enjoyable, your students will grasp the concept of 3D shapes easily.
