Shape

Properties of 2D Shapes?

Place 3 cubes on the table. You can walk around and look at the other side but not pick them up.
How many faces could you see? That’s right……..3×5=15 faces

Now use two cubes and put them in any way that you like. Here are three arrangements I made earlier.

The first one lets me see 9 square faces, the second one 8 square faces and with the two on their own… it’s 10!
So now try arranging 3 cubes in different ways. Here are some ideas. How many faces?
