Free Y5 maths worksheet: making shapes game

Free maths worksheet from

Here is a nice little game that you can play at home with a partner. Make sure that you have got a pile of cubes that interlock. Sit with your back to your partner. You each have the same number of cubes (about 6 – 9 are quite enough) and to begin with, the same colours. One of you makes a quite simple shape from about 6 cubes. You then describe your shape to your partner and they have to try and build an identical shape – not always as easy as it seems!

This is very good practice at describing shapes. Children can be helped initially by giving them cubes of different colours, but later use cubes of the same colour which need more description.
