# how to make geometry shapes model using paper and cardboard

Creating a geometry shapes model using paper and cardboard is a wonderful way to learn about different geometric figures and their formulas. Below, I’ll guide you through making models for some basic shapes:

Materials Needed:

• Cardboard sheets
• Colorful paper
• Scissors
• Markers or colored pencils (for labeling and details)

1. Square:

• Cut out a square from cardboard to serve as the base.
• Create a 3D effect by gluing four smaller squares on the corners, slightly elevated.

2. Rectangle:

• Cut out a rectangle from cardboard and attach smaller rectangles at the longer sides for a 3D effect.

3. Circle:

• Cut out a large circle for the base.
• To create a 3D effect, cut a thin strip of cardboard and form it into a ring. Attach it around the circumference of the circle.

4. Triangle:

• Cut out an equilateral triangle from cardboard.
• Attach three smaller triangles to the sides for a 3D effect.

5. Cylinder:

• Cut out two identical circles for the top and bottom bases.
• Create the side surface by cutting a rectangle and rolling it into a cylinder shape.

6. Cube:

• Cut out six equal squares from cardboard.
• Assemble them to form a 3D cube.

7. Cone:

• Create a circular base using cardboard and paper.
• Cut a sector from a circle and form it into a cone shape.

8. Sphere:

• Create a 3D effect by gluing several paper circles on top of each other.

9. Pyramid:

• Create a square base and attach four triangles around the edges to form a 3D pyramid.

10. Cuboid:

• Cut out a rectangular base and attach smaller rectangles for the sides and top to create a 3D effect.

11. Cylindrical Prism:

• Create two identical circles for the bases.
• Attach a rectangular strip around the edges to form a 3D prism.

12. Triangular Prism:

• Create a triangular base and attach three smaller triangles around the sides to form a 3D prism.

13. Hexagonal Prism:

• Create a hexagonal base and attach six smaller hexagons around the sides to form a 3D prism.
