In this lesson, we will learn about the properties of 3D shapes using their names and identifying the number of vertices, faces and edges.

In this lesson, we will be able to identify prisms and cylinders using their properties and associated vocabulary.

In this lesson, we will practise visualising the nets of cubes as 3D shapes.

In this lesson, we will learn about nets of prisms, how to identify them and how they relate to the properties of 3D shapes.

In this lesson, we will explore different strategies to count the number of cubes a solid shape is made from.

In this lesson, we will learn what volume is, and you will use informal counting strategies to find the volume of different solid shapes.

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the volume of a cuboid.

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the volume of prisms and cylinders.

In this lesson, we will be introduced to the concept of surface area, and how to calculate it.

In this lesson, we will explore patterns related to surface area and form conjectures based on your findings.

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the surface area of cuboids.

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the surface area of cylinders.
