At Smart Boarding School, we understand the importance of building a strong foundation in geometry for young learners. That's why we’re excited to introduce our latest free resource: the "Names of 3D Objects" worksheet. Perfect for kindergarten, year 1, and year 2 students, this activity makes learning the names of 3D shapes fun and interactive.


Unveiling the World of 3D Objects

Learning the names and properties of 3D objects is a crucial step in early maths education. Our "Names of 3D Objects" worksheet is designed to help young students easily identify and name various 3D shapes, enhancing their geometric vocabulary and visual-spatial skills.


What’s Included in the Worksheet

This comprehensive worksheet consists of two pages, providing a hands-on approach to learning:

  1. Page 1: Cut and Prepare

    • Students begin by cutting out the images of 3D objects and their corresponding names. This activity not only engages them in a practical task but also helps develop their fine motor skills.

  2. Page 2: Match and Glue

    • The second page features a table where students will glue the picture of each 3D object next to its name. The 3D objects included are:

      • Sphere

      • Cone

      • Triangular Prism

      • Cylinder

      • Cube

      • Rectangular Prism


How to Use the Worksheet

  1. Print and Prepare: Print the worksheet on standard paper. For durability, you might consider using cardstock or laminating the cut-out pieces for repeated use.

  2. Cutting Activity: Guide students to carefully cut out the images of the 3D objects and their names from the first page.

  3. Matching and Gluing: On the second page, students will match each 3D object with its name and glue them in the correct spaces on the table. This matching activity reinforces their understanding and helps them memorise the names of the shapes.


Why This Worksheet Works

  • Visual and Hands-On Learning: The worksheet combines visual learning with a hands-on activity, making it easier for students to understand and remember the names of 3D shapes.

  • Skill Development: In addition to learning geometry, students also enhance their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through cutting and gluing.

  • Engaging and Fun: The interactive nature of the worksheet keeps students engaged, turning learning into a playful experience.
