# Solid Figures

(0)
##### Description:
1.

Show a learner how to identify and classify solid figures, including prisms, pyramids, cones, spheres, cylinders, and hemispheres.

2.

Demonstrate how to name a polyhedron by the shape and number of bases (prisms vs pyramids).

3.

Present the different parts of a polyhedron (faces, edges, vertices).

4.

Provide examples that allow for practice naming polyhedrons, counting faces, edges, and vertices, and identifying congruent faces and congruent edges.

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand how to identify and classify solid figures.
