# how to make shapes model for school project | mathematics models DIY

## INTRODUCTION

In this topic, we are going to show you how to build shapes model at home for your science project or exhibitions.

This homemade geometric shapes maths project ideas is done using materials like cardboard, white, color paper and hot glue gun which is easily available at home at low cost.

## Geometric shapes

Geometric shapes help us to solve a real-world problem. They have a distinctive exterior and an interior and many of them have distinct corners and edges also.

Example: Triangle has three corners and three sides while the circle has a round exterior which surrounds its interior.

Each geometric shape has its set of equations for finding perimeter, area, and volume.

## 3d shapes model in math for students at home step by step video?

In this video, we will show steps by step video instructions on how to build shapes model at home easy way.

First, take a small size rectangular cardboard and draw a square of 6 x 6 cm using scale and pen.

Cut it with a scissor, place it on a green color paper and trace it out and cut this green color paper too and stick them together with the help of fevicol.

Similarly, create multiple square pieces and stick them together with the help of hot glue. Stick all the borders of the square with red tape.

Second, take a medium size rectangular cardboard and draw a rectangle of 9 x 6 cm 4 pieces | 6 x 6 2 pieces using scale and pen.

Cut it with a scissor, place it on a pink color paper and trace it out and cut this pink color paper too and stick them together with the help of fevicol.

Similarly, create multiple rectangle pieces and stick them together with the help of hot glue. Stick all the borders of a rectangle with red tape.

Third, take an orange color paper and draw a circle of 10 cm. Draw and cut it as shown in the video to create a cone and staple it.

Fourth take a blue color rectangular paper and wrap it around a cylindrical perfume spray and stick the end of it with the help of fevicol.

Take large rectangular shape cardboard and draw a circle – 3 cm, Square – 4 x 4 cm, Rectangle – 6 x 4 cm. Cut it circle, square, rectangle and triangle.

Similarly, create a green color circle, blue color square, yellow color triangle, a pink color rectangle from color papers. Stick them together.

Take large rectangular shape cardboard and paste it with whiter color char paper and stick the edges of it with red color tape. Next stick Cube, Cuboid, Cone, Cylinder, Circle, Square, Rectangle and Triangle and label them all.
