2D and 3D Shapes by bgfl.org

This interactive activity explains the difference between 2D and 3D shapes. It allows them to explore 2D and 3D shapes and consider their properties.

There are 9 2D shapes in all and 11 3D shapes. There is also a simple worksheet in MS Word format that can be downloaded and printed.


Ideal for whole class work on a whiteboard or research for homework. Unfortunately this activity is Flash based and so will not work on an iPhone or iPad – works fine on a desktop Mac.
