#### What Are Geometric Nets?
They are a smoothed out three-dimensional hard shapes such as a solid cube, a prism, or a pyramid. If you want to see how exactly the three-dimensional shape looks, cut the net, fold it, and shape it with glue. In short, we say this shapes 3D as it has three dimensions: length, width, and height.
Common Measurements for Geometric Nets: We need geometry net (three-dimensional shape) for the following measurements;
**Volume** - It is like what quantity of liquid it holds.
**Surface Area** - how much area you would have to clean to cover the inside of the shape.
Crafting paper patterns of geometry nets encourages kids to search about two-dimensional shapes more and then take an interest in making three-dimensional models.
This practice is suitable to do on events or occasions. For example, it would be suitable to hang such shapes on the Christmas tree.
You can make these 2D and 3D patterns with the following conditions;
Platonic Solids Model in which all the sides are identical will be identical.
Prisms 3D Model should look identical, and if you are making rectangles and squares, their appearance must be identical.

Geometry nets are flattened three-dimensional shapes. Have you ever seen card board displays in store? These all started out a cardboard geometry nets. The net is the pattern that is created by the flattened version of figure. If these three-dimensional shapes are solid, it does greatly change the net that is formed. In this section we will look at the geometric interpretation of these nets. These worksheets explain how to use geometric nets. Your students will use these activity sheets to learn how to calculate the surface area of different types of pyramids.
