3D Shapes EYFS Game

Mathematics: EYFS Exploring 3D Shapes Learning Activity

This learning activity enables children to develop their understanding of ‘solid’ 3D shapes. You can use this as a matching activity, where children match the prepared separate cards or as a cutting activity where children cut out the cards independently before matching them together. In both instances, children match the everyday object to its corresponding 3D shape. Supporting adults can ensure children use the correct vocabulary, i.e. faces, flat, curved, edges, corners/vertices, the same and equal, by asking appropriate questions.

Early Learning Goal

(ELG12) Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Development Matters Statement Links
(M-S8) Beginning to use mathematical names for ‘solid’ 3D shapes and ‘flat’ 2D shapes, and mathematical terms to describe shapes.
(M-S9) Selects a particular named shape.
(M-S13) Uses familiar objects and common shapes to create and recreate patterns and build models.
