Three-Dimensional Shapes

3D Shapes for Class 5 Maths

3d shapes contain three dimensions. Here students will learn about 3d shape definition.

In this learning concept, the students will also learn to

  • Classify the 3d shapes images.
  • Identify 3d shapes faces edges vertices.
  • Determine the 3d shapes chart faces edges vertices.

Each concept is explained to class 5 maths students using illustrations, examples, and mind maps. Students can assess their learning by solving the two printable worksheets given at the page’s end.

Download the 3d shapes worksheet for class 5 and check the solutions to the question of the 3d shape for class 5 provided in PDF format.


What Are 3D Shapes?

  • A three-dimension is a solid shape that has three dimensions namely- length, breadth, and height.
  • A three-dimensional shape is also written as 3-D, where 3 stands for “dimension”.
  • Let us understand the terms related to 3-D shapes.


What Are 3D Shapes?

Faces of 3d Shapes:

  • Faces are the surface of 3-D shapes.
  • A shape may have 1 or more than 1 face.


Vertices of 3D Shapes:

  • The point where two or more lines meet is called the vertex.
  • The plural form of the vertex is the vertices.
  • A 3-D shape has 1 or more than 1 vertex.
  • A sphere and cylinder are exceptional 3-D shapes. They have 0 vertex.


Edges of 3D Shapes:

  • The line segment that joins two vertices is called an edge.
  • A cylinder has two edges where two plane surface meets the curved surface.
  • A sphere has no vertices. Therefore, it has no edges.
