Learning all about 3D objects๐Ÿ”ด๐ŸŸจ๐Ÿ”ท

3D objects are fat not flat.
A cone is like a party hat. ๐Ÿฅณ
A sphere is a bouncy ball. ๐ŸŽพ
A prism is a building tall. ๐Ÿข
A cylinder is like a soda pop. ๐Ÿฅค
A cube is like a dice you drop. ๐ŸŽฒ
3D objects are here and there, 3D objects are everywhere!
