Description

A common real-world situation is used to explain how a 3D object can be created from a 2D 'net' shape. We learn how to identify, visualise and describe properties of rectangles and 3D solids. Knowledge of properties is used to draw 2D shapes and identify and draw nets of 3D shapes.

Classroom Ideas

This clip can be used in a lesson on turning nets into 3D shapes and working out which shapes a net represents. Pupils can watch the clip and then be given a selection of nets which they have to fold in order to turn into 3D shapes. Once they have mastered this, pupils can then be instructed to look at some more nets and predict which shape they will create, before being allowed to check.
