# 3d Shapes Worksheets Properties and Names of 3d Shapes

Welcome to our 3d Shapes Worksheets page.

Here you will find our selection of free shape worksheets to help you child to name and learn some of the properties of the 3d shapes they will meet at 2nd grade.

The main focus on this page is the identification and properties of different types of 3d shapes: cubes, cuboids, prisms, pyramids, cones, cylinders and spheres. ## 3D Shapes Worksheets

### An overview of common 3d Shapes

 Cube Cubes have 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. All sides on a cube are equal length. All faces are square in shape. A cube is a type of cuboid. Cuboid Cuboids have 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. All the faces on a cuboid are rectangular. Sphere Spheres have either 0 or 1 faces, 0 edges and 0 vertices. Cylinder Cylinders have either 2 or 3 faces, 0 or 2 edges, and 0 vertices. Cone Cones have either 1 or 2 faces, 0 or 1 edges, and 1 apex (which is described by some mathematicians as a vertex). Triangular Prism Triangular Prisms have 5 faces, 9 edges, and 6 vertices. The two faces at either end are triangles, and the rest of the faces are rectangular. Hexagonal Prism Hexagonal Prisms have 8 faces, 18 edges, and 12 vertices. The two faces at either end are hexagons, and the rest of the faces are rectangular. Triangular-based Pyramid Triangular-based pyramids have 4 faces, 6 edges and 4 vertices. The base is a triangle. All of the faces are triangular. If the triangular faces making up the prism are all equilateral, then the shape is also called a Tetrahedron. Square-based Pyramid Square based pyramids have 5 faces, 8 edges and 5 vertices The base is a square. All the other faces are triangular. Hexagonal Pyramid Hexagonal pyramids have 7 faces, 12 edges, and 7 vertices. The base is a hexagon. All of the other faces are triangular.
