Creativity in Maths - 3D Shapes!

In Maths we have been exploring 3D shapes. We used lots of materials and 3D shapes to build houses. We worked with a partner to plan the design of our houses and share our ideas. Some of the features we added to our creations were: a fountain, a swimming pool, a balcony, a double story house, a garage with a car, a staircase, outdoor furniture and one group even built a palace and a disco! and another group built a mansion with a waterfall - all using 3D shapes. Very, very creative!

When we had finished we shared our houses and talked about the shapes we had used. 

What 3D shapes do you know?


  1. Some great creativity from the preps, there may be some future engineers amongst them.

  2. Good morning Prep K,
    What fantastic houses you have all built using 3D shapes! I especially like the castle with the cone on top of the turrets because it makes it look like a fairytale castle.

  3. Congratulations Preps on making such awesome 3D constructions. I love the colorful buildings and creations using so many amazing shapes. It was interesting to look at all the different views of all the sides, edges and corners.
    Keep up the wonderful maths posts!
