Transcript of Copy of Angry Birds - An Introduction to 3D Shapes

3D Shapes
An Introduction to 3D Shapes
And one more thing...
is here
What is a 2D shape?

Write a list of the 2D shapes
you can see in the following
YouTube clip.
Identifying 2D Shapes
Introducing 3D Shapes
What is
Angry Birds?
Angry birds is a
game for iPhones,
iPads and computers.
The aim of the game
is to attack the pigs
by throwing birds
from a slingshot
and reclaim the stolen eggs.

Let's meet the birds...
Big and....
... small
Prisms are 3D shapes. Prisms are
made from two polygons
connected by rectangles. Prisms
do not have any curves. A prism is
named by the shape of its base.

Most buildings are made
from prism shapes.

Can you name 10 objects in
your classroom that are prisms shaped?

Cylinders are 3D shapes. Cylinders are made from two circles joined by a curved side. Many drinks are packaged in cylinders.
Can you think of some using the following
images of cylinders as a guide?
Cones are 3D shapes. Cones have
a circle as a base and a single curved
face that meets at a vertex. Cones look
a bit like pyramids with a circular base.

Can you think of some more
examples of cones in
everyday life?
Spheres are completely round, with
no edges or corners.
The Earth is an example of
a sphere.

Can you find some spheres
in your classroom?

How is a sphere different to a circle?

You can find ancient
pyramids in the country
of Egypt.

We will now watch an Angry
Birds 3D animation.

Watch closely, because we are going to be
identifying and grouping the 3D shapes
into categories based on their features.
Pyramids are 3D shapes.
Pyramids have a polygon base
connected with triangular faces
that meet at a common vertex.
Pyramids do not have any curved lines.
A pyramid is named by the shape of
its base.
Triangular Pyramid
Square Pyramid
Pentagonal Pyramid
SGS2.1 - describes features of prisms, pyramids, cylinders cones and spheres.
SGS2.1 - identifies and names groups of 3D objects as prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones and spheres.

MONDAY - Whole class activity
TUESDAY - Whole class activity
WEDNESDAY - Whole class activity
THURSDAY - Exploration
SGS2.1 - identifies and names 3D objects as prisms, pyramids, cylinders cones and spheres.
SGS2.1 - sketches a 3D objects from different views including top, front and side views.
- makes models of 3D objects given a picture or photograph to view.
Today you will be designing and making your own Angry Bird. The most creative designs will be presented to the class. Here are your instructions:
Decide on a 3D shape for your Angry Bird. It can be either a prism, pyramid, cylinder or cone.
Sketch your Angry Bird in 3D.
Using the skills we just explored, sketch the front view, the top view and the side view.
The facial features (eyes, beak, hair) needs to be constructed from 2D shapes.
Decide on its name, colour and secret attack move.
Label your drawing using mathematical language e.g., edge, face, curve, etc.

Once you have finished your design, show Ms V to collect your template.
Create your Angry Bird.

If you have finished, create a wanted poster for your Angry Bird using your sketches.
Write a list of all the features of your Angry Bird.
Today you will be designing your own 3D Angry Birds play set.
You will need to:
Decide on a theme for your play set e.g., jungle, ocean, space, Ausralia, outback...
Sketch your pieces. You may chose to draw trees, wood, stone, ice, etc. - just be sure to draw at least one of every 3D shape we have learned this week, i.e., a prism, a pyramid, a cylinder, a sphere and a cone.
Once you have completed your sketches, you can create your play set using paper templates, toilet roles, found objects, or play dough.

To create an excellent play set you will need:
At least 5 environmental objects (wood, ice, stone, tree, etc.)
At least one pig
At least one Angry Bird
At least one of every shape
MONDAY - Explicit teaching
Tuesday - Orientation
MONDAY - Applying the concept in small groups
Wednesday - Orientation
SGS2.3 - describes location of object using more than one descriptor
- describes a route on a simple map
Monday - Reflection
Let's see if you can identify 3D shapes in everyday objects.

Activity 1:

Activity 2:
Tuesday - Orientation
Online activity: http://www.learningplace.com.au/sc/online/MathsYr4/vids/lo_3dshapes_v0_03.html
You are all detectives. Name each
shape and tell the class what
clue you used to identify it.

You will now need to collect:
One magazine
One pair of scissors

You will be cutting out 3D shapes from magazines and arranging them into categories. You will need to experiment with grouping into different categories, such as:
3D shapes - prisms, pyramids, cones, spheres, cylinders
3D shapes with a curved edge and 3D shapes with no curved edges
Create your own grouping!
