3D Shapes Song for Kids LYRICS:

There are many places to find a sphere,
like when a tennis ball happens to roll near.
You can shoot a sphere playing basketball,
and you see one in the sky when the moonlight falls.
Planets are spheres--whether red or blue.
The bearings in machines are tiny spheres, too.
Marbles are spheres that roll around.
Spheres are exercise balls that bounce up and down!

Spheres are shapes that are perfectly round,
like balls that tend to roll along the ground.

CONE! …All 3-D shapes!

One kitchen cylinder is a soup can;
they look the same from New York to Japan!
Pens can be cylinders we use every day.
Power poles are cylinders that bring power our way.
Toilet paper rolls are cylinders, too,
if the missing bases are added by you!
Some jars just might be cylinders as well.
When it comes to straws, it can be hard to tell.

Cylinders have two circular bases
that are congruent, parallel faces.

The Egyptian pyramids stand very tall.
Closed umbrellas look like pyramids before rain fall.
Trees can look like pyramids touching the sky.
A pyramid block of cheese...give it a try!
Some house rooftops look like pyramids, too,
and some perfume bottles, with scents that are new.
Pyramid-shaped paper weights on a desk,
looking their best as they stand so picturesque!

With a base, an apex, and faces,
pyramids are found in most wondrous places!

If you've rolled dice, then you’ve rolled cubes.
Pyrite crystal cubes can be grown in tubes.
Blocks are cubes much of the time.
Clocks can be cubes, making hourly chimes.
A box in the mail might be a cube shape;
ice cubes can cool your ice cream shake.
Some cube containers store food in the fridge,
and some concrete cubes can hold up a bridge!

The faces of a cube are all a square.
So we can spot them almost anywhere.

Waffle cones can hold vanilla ice cream.
Hats on witches are cones that might make you scream.
Orange cones can show dangers in the road.
Teepees are cones that make a great abode.
Castle turrets are cones to watch outside.
A flashlight's cone of light is a great night guide.
Cone-shaped cups may hold something to eat.
Some shoes look like cones when they're on your feet!

With a circular base and pointy “vertex”....
cones are always a favorite 3-D object!
