4 Fun Faces, Edges, and Vertices Worksheet for 3D Shape Objects
Here are 4 free worksheets from where you can get a proper idea of the faces edges and vertices of different 3D objects. You can also follow the shape from a 3D anchor chart to get the idea of different shapes.
Definition of Faces, Edges, and Vertices: Identification with Counting
Faces: It is a flat surface that creates a boundary in a three-dimensional shape. You can consider it as the sides of a shape. For example, a cube has 6 faces, and each of them is square.
See the below image carefully, the cube has 6 faces. You can identify the faces of the cube as we highlighted one of these faces.
Edges: The edge represents the shape of a line segment where two faces intersect. Let’s take the previous example, in a cube there are 12 edges connecting two faces.
The highlighted line is in the below image. There are 12 edges in the cube. You can count them if you understand them properly.
Vertices: It is a point where two or more lines, curves, or edges meet to form a corner of an angle. In a cube, there are 8 vertices. Mainly, it is a point where two edges intersect.
In the below image, three edges intersect at a point. It is the vertex of that cube. Similarly, identify all other vertices of this image. There are 8 vertices here.
Identifying Faces for 3D Objects
Different 3D objects of different geometric shapes have different faces, edges, and vertices. The identification is quite similar to what we described above.
Identify the 3D Shape from Its Properties
Sometimes, you may find problems where the properties of the 3D objects have been described. Suppose, a geometric shape has 5 faces, 8 edges, and 5 vertices. What can be the shape? Can you identify from the below figures?
It will be a square pyramid that exactly matches the above properties.
Here is the PDF for the faces edges and vertices worksheet.
