Maths lesson: 3d objects from 2d drawings. KS2 KS3

Overall rating 4 out of 54.8 (24 ratings)

Last updated 16 March 2014, created 25 May 2011, viewed 45,884

This is a great lesson to help children understand 2d drawings representing 3d objects. If you use it could you review it? The lesson uses websites listed on lesson plan. These involve isometric paper on the whiteboard, along with exploding 2d pictures of 3d shape blocks to help children visualis More…e them more easily. Children predict from the worksheets how many blocks they can see and use real 3d blocks to confirm their predictions. Files attached with answers in case you are not sure (as the teacher)!

It is Sunday night - I am tired. I still have 60 books to mark, planning, an observation lesson to sort, an application form to start and uniforms for the kids to iron. This is perfect for maths for about three lessons! I love you!
