Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Recognise similar shaped objects and be able to explain how they are similar.
  2. A cuboid is shaped like a box.
  3. A cube is a special cuboid that has all faces the same size.
  4. A pyramid always has some triangle faces and a base that might be a different shape.

Common misconception

Children might mix up words that sound alike e.g. cube and cuboid.

Allow additional practice for children to name shapes throughout the day, particularly those that are familiar within their environment.

Keywords

  • Similar - When one thing is like something else.

  • Cuboid - A 3D shape with six rectangular faces.

  • Cube - A 3D shape with six identical faces.

  • Pyramid - A 3D shape with one vertex, some triangular faces and a base that might be a different shape.

Allow children opportunities to explore 3D shapes throughout the day. Talk about what they feel like and what different 3D shapes might be useful. For example, why did you choose that shape to add to your model?
