Lesson 24 Intro
Introduction to 3D Geometry
Goals 
I will be able to explain the difference between a prism and pyramid. I will be able to identify what type of a prism or a pyramid it is. I will be able to identify a prism or pyramids vertices, faces, and edges. I will be able to understand and use prism and pyramid nets.

Building our Knowledge
What are the parts of a pyramid and a prism? What is a net?
Let's Make Some 3D Solids
I would like you to make 5 geometric solids (3D shapes) using nets. After you have made these 5 shapes, please take a picture of the group of them. Send me the picture, and I will post it on the website! Enjoy!!
There are two different ways you can do this.
 First way is to hand draw the nets. You will need paper, scissors, a ruler, a pencil, and some tape or glue.
 The second way is to print out the net and then put it together. You will need a printer, scissors, and some tape or glue.
Hand Drawn Nets
Follow the video instructions to make your nets. Then follow the instructions to fold into a 3D shape or geometric solid.

Printable Nets
There are three different printable nets.....
1. Colored Net 2. Black and White Net (more fun to decorate or print on colored paper) 3. Cute Net (fun for younger brothers/ sisters) If you are having problems folding, watch the video. It shows how to fold.

1. Cube
2. Rectangular Prism
3. Triangular Prism
4. Rectangular Pyramid
5. Triangular Pyramid
If you are unable to make 3D shapes at home,

Optional Figures
(No, you don't have to do these!! The videos are fun to watch!!)
If you are enjoying making these 3D shapes, here are some optional resources. Please... send pictures!!
