Students develop verbal, visual and mental representations of three-dimensional objects, their parts and properties, and different orientations.


Early Stage One


SGES1.1: Manipulates, sorts and represents three-dimensional objects and describes them using everyday language.

Key ideas:

Stage One


SGS1.1: Sorts, describes and represents three-dimensional objects including cones, cubes, cylinders, spheres and prisms, and recognises them in pictures and the environment.

Key ideas:

Stage Two


SGS2.1: Makes, compares, describes and names three-dimensional objects including pyramids, and represents them in drawings.

Key ideas:
  • Name, describe, sort, make and sketch prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones and spheres.
  • Create nets from everyday packages.
  • Describe cross-sections of three-dimensional objects.

Stage Three


SGS3.1: Identifies three-dimensional objects, including particular prisms and pyramids, on the basis of their properties, and visualises, sketches and constructs them given drawings of different views.

Key ideas:
  • Identify three-dimensional objects, including particular prisms and pyramids, on the basis of their properties.
  • Construct three dimensional models given drawings of different views.
