What are NETS of 3D Shapes?

A NET is a flat diagram of a solid figure (2 Dimensional drawing of a 3 Dimensional shape).

Using NETS to make 3D shapes is lots of fun for kids.

Suggested Activities:

Here are some Videos about nets from You Tube. Click on the links below to view.

~ 3D Shapes and their Nets

~ Introduction to Nets and 3D objects 


Here is a link to some great nets for kids from SEN Teacher that you can download and print.  The students can color, cut, and paste/tape the 2D shapes to make 3D shapes. Click on the link below. 


Students can create their own nets of different 3D shapes. They could use dot or grid paper. 


Students could "unglue" a cereal or other small box to change its shape from 3D back to its original 2D shape.
