Today we are going to look at the net of 2-dimensional shapes. A net is a flat figure that can be folded to form a closed, three- dimensional object. These type of objects are called a geometric solid .

## Task 1-Exploring the net of a cube

As you move the dot along the line you will be able to visualize how the net of the cube folds to form a solid.

## QUESTION 1

## Task 2- Drawing a net of a solid

Watch the short video below and then draw your own net of a rectangular prism on the grid paper provided and then cut it out to make your own net into a solid.
Your rectangular prism will be 4cm x 5cm x 6cm

## Task 3- What is this?

Which solid can be formed using the net shown?

## Task 4- Rectangular prism
