Description / View-Thru Geometric Solids (Set of 14)

The shapes are brightly coloured, yet transparent, so can be used in conjunction with a light source for added effect. Seeing through the 3D solid will help students to identify and compare how 2D shapes make up a 3D construction, whilst being able to examine the removable bases will further reinforce this understanding.

Teaching volume

One of the most useful features of this product is that the shapes can be filled with liquid or dry materials using the sealable cap. Volume and capacity are closely related topics. By experimenting with the capacity each shape has for holding a set amount of liquid, it’s possible to spark fruitful conversation amongst students on the topics of measurement, area and volume. By making predictions about which shapes might hold the most, and testing these ideas, students will be able to challenge their preconceptions.

Made to last

The shapes are made from a classroom-friendly, durable plastic, and are presented in six attractive colours: blue, purple, red, green, yellow, and red.

In full, this product contains:

  • 14x geometric shapes, one each of large cube, small cube, large cuboid, small cuboid, pentagonal prism, large triangular prism, small triangular prism, square pyramid, triangular pyramid, large cylinder, small cylinder, cone, sphere, and hemisphere.

Shapes measure between 30mm and 60mm.

Suitable for children aged 8 and above.

Review by Jo
Love the product! Bright colours and see-through enables the kids to see from lots of different perspectives. They came very quickly and were all in perfect condition upon arriving. Thank you.
I was a little disappointed with this product. I don't think they are made well.
Review by Marie
I was a little disappointed with this product. The half sphere's top came off and the small circle in the middle of some of the shapes came out or was out when they arrived at our school. Unfortunately a child threw another shape and it chipped slightly, however that is more my fault than the product.
