CONTENT OF THE LESSON

**LESSON 1 – INTRODUCTION **

ACTIVITY 1 – 2D AND 3D SHAPESThree dimensional shapes are objects or shapes that three dimensions such as length, width, and height.

Three dimensional shapes are known as 3D shapes.

While two dimensional shapes have just two dimensions such as length and width.

Two dimensional shapes are also known as 2D shapes.

The properties of a three dimensional shapes are,

1. Faces

2. Edges

3. Vertices

ACTIVITY 2 – THREE DIMENSIONAL SHAPESThe following shapes are the basic three dimensional shapes we see around us,

1. Cube

2. Cuboid (Rectangular prism)

3. Triangular prism

4. Sphere

5. Cone

6. Cylinder

7. Pyramid

WORKING EXERCISEDraw the following three dimensional shapes,

1. Cube

2. Cuboid (Rectangular prism)

3. Triangular prism

4. Sphere

5. Cone

6. Cylinder

7. Pyramid

**LESSON 2 – THE NETS OF TRIANGULAR, SQUARE AND RECTANGULAR PRISMS **

ACTIVITY 1 – NET OF THREE DIMENSIONALA net is a pattern made from two dimensional shape to form three dimensional shape.

THE NETS OF PRISMThe net of a prism consists of six faces.

Focus prisms are triangular, square and rectangular prisms.

NET OF TRIANGULAR PRISMThe net of a triangular prism consists of two triangle with three squares or rectangles.

NET OF SQUARE PRISMThe net of a square prism consists of six squares.

NET RECTANGULAR PRISMThe net of a rectangular prism consists of two squares and four rectangles.

Rectangular prism is also as cuboid.

ACTIVITY 2 – MAKING OF PRISMMaterials Needed are cardboard, pencil, ruler and gum.

Teacher organizes the pupils in groups or pairs depending on the size of the class and guides them,

1. to draw the nets of cube and cuboid.

2. use the nets to make cube and cuboid.

**LESSON 3 – TRIANGULAR AND RECTANGULAR PYRAMIDS **

ACTIVITY 1 – NETS OF SQUARE, TRIANGULAR AND RECTANGULAR PYRAMIDS

NET OF SQUARE PYRAMIDThe net of a square pyramid consists of one square and four triangles.

NET OF TRIANGULAR PYRAMIDThe net of a triangles pyramid consists of four triangles.

One of the triangle is a base.

NET OF RECTANGULAR BASE PYRAMIDSThe net of a rectangular pyramid consists of one rectangle and four triangles.

ACTIVITY 2 – MAKING OF SQUARE, TRIANGULAR AND RECTANGULAR PYRAMIDSMaterials Needed are cardboard, pencil, ruler and gum.

Teacher organizes the pupils in groups or pairs depending on the size of the class and guides them,

1. to draw the nets of square, triangular and rectangular pyramids.

2. use the nets to make square, triangular and rectangular pyramids.

**LESSON 4 – NET OF OTHER THREE DIMENSIONAL SHAPES **

NET OF A CONE

NET OF A CYLINDER

MAKING OF A CONE AND CYLINDERTeacher guides pupils as groups or pairs to make a cone and cylinder.

**REVISION AND WEEKLY ASSESSMENT **

As stated in performance objectives or lesson evaluation.

**PRESENTATION**

To deliver the lesson, the teacher adopts the following steps:

1. To introduce the lesson, the teacher revises the previous lesson. Based on this, he/she asks the pupils some questions;

2. Teacher organizes the pupils in groups or pair depending on the size of the class.

3. Teacher displays sample and chart of 2D and 3D shapes.

4. Teacher asks pupils as groups or pairs to identify and describe the shapes.

Pupil’s Activities – identify and describe the 2D and 3D shapes.

5. Teacher uses the sample, chart and pupil’s responses to introduce the lesson and leads a discussion on the nets of three dimensional shapes.

Pupil’s Activities – Pay attention to the lesson introduction to understand the concept of the lesson.

6. Teacher leads pupils as groups or pairs to draw the nets of different types of prisms and pyramids.

7. Teacher guides pupils to use the nets to make different types of prisms and pyramids.

Pupil’s Activities – Follow the instructions to draw the nets and make different types of prisms and pyramids.

8. Teacher summarizes the lesson on the board with appropriate evaluation.

Pupil’s Activities – Participate actively in the summary of the lesson and write as instructed.

**CONCLUSION**

To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following week’s lesson.
