A Little Something to Think About
(write these up on card & display)

- Find a real world example of a hexagonal pyramid.
- If you stand a hexagonal pyramid on its side is it still a hexagonal pyramid?
- Many educators believe that 3d shapes are NOT taught so students remember the name of each shape. They think students should be able to look at the properties of each shape and then use their thinking skills to work out its name. What do you think?

Construction Hints

- score the hexagonal pyramid net along ALL fold lines before attempting to assemble
- use a ruler to aid scoring
- use sticky tape on the tabs to assemble this shape rather than glue. It is much easier.
