## What are 3 dimensional shapes and give some examples?

A cube, rectangular prism, sphere, cone and cylinder are the basic 3-dimensional shapes we see around us. We can see a cube in a Rubik’s cube and a die, a rectangular prism in a book and a box, a sphere in a globe and a ball, a cone in carrot and an ice cream cone, and a cylinder in a bucket and a barrel, around us.

## How do you explain three dimensional shapes to kids?

It goes like this, “3D shapes are solid, not flat. They have corners, edges and faces….3D Shapes Chant

- Make a sphere for “solid” and then clap hands like you’re collapsing the sphere into a flat circle on “flat.”
- Point to an imaginary corner (like on a cube, for example) when you say “corners.”

**What is dimension in maths for kids?**

A measurement of length in one direction. Examples: width, depth and height are dimensions. A line has one dimension (1D), a square has two dimensions (2D), and a cube has three dimensions (3D).
