Geometric Solids - Folding Plastic (Set of 16)
Description / Geometric Solids - Folding Plastic (Set of 16)
By deconstructing and reconstructing a 3D shape, students practise thinking logically about its structure and reinforce their understanding of geometric principles. The brightly coloured, durable plastic pieces are designed to support learning in a fun and engaging way.
All the key shapes
This set includes 2D folding nets and the corresponding transparent 3D forms for eight key shapes. These are: cylinder, square pyramid, cube, cuboid, cone, hexagonal prism, and triangular pyramid. The 2D nets are supplied in four vibrant colours: red, blue, green, and yellow.
Interacting with these shapes will prompt students to discuss ideas around the key attributes, characteristics, area, and volume, whilst developing their topic-specific language skills.
This set of 16 pieces would suit individual or group working in a busy classroom setting. They could usefully be applied alongside other geometric shape sets to prompt comparative discussion, through use of vocabulary like ‘vertices’, ‘edges’ and ‘faces’.
In full, this product contains:
- 8x 2D nets for cylinder, square pyramid, cube, cuboid, cone, hexagonal prism, and triangular pyramid
- 8x corresponding transparent 3D Geometric solids for the above shapes
Each shape measures H 75mm.
Suitable for children aged 7 and above.
