Nets of 3D Shapes
Is it a Net?
You have to try this printable worksheet if you intend to begin right. Recall the properties of solid shapes and determine if the given figure is a net of a 3D shape. That's not all, go ahead and name the 3-dimensional shape too.
Identifying Nets of 3D Shapes
A cereal box cut open at the edges is the net of a rectangular prism. Get your learners in 4th grade and above to spot the 3D shapes from their nets and name them.
Identifying the 3D Shape from Its Net
Challenge your brood of shape savvy learners to observe each net keenly and identify the 3-dimensional shape that can be created by folding it.
Matching Shapes and Nets
Visualizing how each net when folded forms a 3D figure and counting the number of faces will do the trick in identifying the solid shape and matching the flattened 2D net with its corresponding 3D shape.
Choosing the Correct Nets
Does a triangular pyramid unfold into a net made of four triangles or two triangles and three rectangles? With three options of nets to choose from, this pdf worksheet is a definite brain teaser for your grade 5 and grade 6 students.
Shapes and Nets | Cut and Glue Activity
Nothing feels quite as engaging as this cut and glue activity worksheet. Take things up a notch as learners snip the 3D figure cards and the nets, pair them up and glue them in the correct columns.
Choosing Multiple Nets of 3D Shapes
Did you know a cube has 11 different nets? This pdf is the perfect thing to have on hand if you intend to show learners the multiple nets each 3D shape yields when flattened. Using the attributes of each shape, figure out the possible net(s) from the given options.
Drawing Nets on Grids
Whip up excitement as students get involved in this chore of sketching the nets of 3D figures on grids. Using the properties, draw the nets linking faces or edges of common 2D shapes in different orientations on the grid.
Drawing Two Nets of 3D Shapes
Watch 7th grade and 8th grade students stretch their creative skills as they pick up a pencil, imagine unfolding each 3D shape, and draw two different representations of each net effortlessly.
