# Nets of solids (3-D shapes)

## watch the video "nets of solids"

## open and close the net to explore how the 2d shape transforms into a 3d shape

## with your partner discuss the properties of the net and what properties change and which do not when the net is folded into a rectangular prism

## use this picture to determine how many rectangles and how many hexagons you would need to create a hexagonal prism and how these faces would be positioned

## have a go at creating some nets of cubes

## explore some tricky nets and watch them change into solids

## have a go at identifying the shapes that will be created using the pictured nets
