Today, in our live lesson, we are going to be looking at nets of shapes.


The net of a 3D shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat. A net can be folded up to make a 3D shape.



Look at the net above: 


How many faces does it have?

What shape are they? 

How many vertices does it have? 

How many edges does it have? 


Below are some sheets with different nets. Choose two nets, if you can print them out, answer the questions above and make the nets. What 3-d shape have you made? 


If you haven't got a printer have a look at the nets and answer the questions above and draw the shape you think the nets will make. 


Have fun!
