Year five are currently learning about three-dimensional space. 3D shapes have length, breadth and height.Pyramids and prisms take their name from the shape of their base. Prisms have uniform cross-sections (cuts that are parallel to, and the same size and shape, as the base) whereas pyramids have cross-sections that are not uniform.

Take a look at two students explaining the pairs of parallel faces on a 3D object below.

3D shapes are all around us in the built and natural environment! Take a look at the YouTube clip below.

What 3D shapes can you see at home and/or in the classroom?

Wow, you have found a lot of 3D shapes around your house. I wonder if you or someone else could identify what 3D shapes each object is. I wonder if your television is a cube or a rectangular prism!

Thats a lot of 3d shapes you have there! I have a lot too but theres just too much aswell i can’t fit it otherwise it will take up a whole lot of space!

Well done! You have found many 3D shapes in your house. I wonder if you could identify what shapes each object is. I’m guessing the book is a rectangular prism. Am I correct?

I have learnt a lot about 3D space. I have learnt how to draw the net shapes of 3D objects, what a plane is what vertices are and what uniform and not uniform- cross sections are. There are a lot of 3D objects around us for example: drink bottle, containers, a door and computer monitor. e.t.c

Welcome to Five White's class blog. We are a class of 29 in Sydney, Australia. Our teacher is Miss Azzopardi and we use our blog to share all of the great things that we are doing in our classroom. Please leave a comment, we love reading them!

Value of the Week

Kindness: The quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. Have you made someone smile today?

Positive Thought

Everyone makes mistakes, so instead of getting angry with myself, I try to do better.

Reminders

1. Complete the Lexile quizzes online.
2. Log into Mathletics and complete the activities.
3. Comment on the Five White student blogs.

Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

I love learning about 3d space!! I learnt about interesting things like a plane, cross section, uniform cross section and more.

The things i see at home that are 3d space:

-container

-book

-bottle

-cupboard

-fruit

-television

-paper

-Lots more

Yours Truly,

Kevin

Dear Kevin,

Wow, you have found a lot of 3D shapes around your house. I wonder if you or someone else could identify what 3D shapes each object is. I wonder if your television is a cube or a rectangular prism!

Kind regards,

Miss Azzopardi

Dear Kevin,

Thats a lot of 3d shapes you have there! I have a lot too but theres just too much aswell i can’t fit it otherwise it will take up a whole lot of space!

Sincerely,

Kong

Dear Miss Azzopardi and five white,

I love learning about 3D space!!!! The 3D shapes are……

-watch holder (square prism)

-bottle (cylinder)

-basket (rectangular prism)

Sincerely,

Jennifer E

Dear Jennifer.E,

It looks like you love learning about 3D space!!! Keep yo the good work!

Sincerely,

Jennifer.A

Dear 5 White and Miss Azzopardi,

Some objects that are 3D shapes are….

-TV (Rectangular Prism)

-Tissue Box (Square Prism)

-Bookshelf (cube)

And much more!

Kind Regards,

Kong

Dear Kong,

You have learnt so much about 3D space and what type of shape it is.

Next time just add a question to your comment to make it better.

Sincerely Anthony

Dear Kong,

Well done Kong! Although some televisions may not be a rectangular prism, some may be a cube, some more you could add are:

-Tin can (Cylinder)

-Ball (Sphere)

-Markers (Rectangular Prism)

-Book (Rectangular Prism)

-Clock (Rectangular Prism Or Cylinder)

Kind Regards,

Nathan

Dear Five White and Miss Azzopardi,

3D Space is a very fun topic in Maths! I learnt A LOT of new things about 3D Space!

The following 3D objects I see at home that are 3D are:

* Tissue boxes

* A Rubbish bin

* A Book

* A Bottle

* A Glue stick

* A Box

* A TV

Sincerely,

Cecilia 😀

Dear Cecilia,

Well done! You have found many 3D shapes in your house. I wonder if you could identify what shapes each object is. I’m guessing the book is a rectangular prism. Am I correct?

Kind regards,

Miss Azzopardi

Dear Miss Azzopardi,

You are correct!!! A book is a rectangular prism because it’s base is a rectangle.

• Tissue box = Rectanglular Prism

• Rubbish Bin = Cylinder

• Bottle = Cylinder

• Glue Stick = Cylinder

• A TV = Rectanglular Prism or a Cube

Yours Sincerely,

Cecilia

Dear Cecilia,

You found a lot of shapes. Great job

Kind regards,

Jennifer E

Dear Cecilia,
