# Prisms, Pyramids, Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres Worksheets

What Are Prisms, Pyramids, Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres? Shapes are present all around us! The tires of the car are circular, the books are square, the pillow is shaped like a rectangle, and so many more! However, these are just a few! Let's take a look at some more shapes! Prism - A prism is a shape formed with two identical ends and flat sides. The end shapes of the prism give the shape its name such as a triangular prism, square prism, rectangular prism, hexagonal prism, and many more! Prisms are polyhedrons, and their sides are parallelograms. Pyramid - A pyramid is a polyhedron formed by triangular sides that meet at the top, which is known as the apex. The base of the pyramid is a polygon, which is flat shaped with straight sides. A pyramid maybe square, triangle, pentagon, or others too! Cylinders - Cylinders are solid objects that have two flat ends. These ends are always identical and circular or elliptical. Cylinders have one curved side and have the same cross-section from one to the other. Cones - Cones are solid, three-dimensional objects that have a circular base that joins to a point with a curved side. This point is known as vertex. Spheres - Spheres are three-dimensional objects that look like a circle. All points on the surface of the sphere are at the same distance from the center.
