1. Cut a circle out of a piece of paper. 2. Cut a triangle by making two cuts to the center of the circle as shown. The triangle should be one quarter of the circle. 3. Then hold the edge of the slits you made and fold it around so they connect.
4. Then Tape the slits together to make a cone.

Examples of cones we use today

Traffic Cone Ice Cream Cone

Synonmyms

Conoid, pyramid, raceme, strobile, and strobiloid.

Why We Study Cones
We study cones for many reasons. Cones are a part of geometry, in geometry we study volume, area, perimeter, and surface area. Cones help us practice how to do this and in life you need to know how to get the area, perimeter, volume and all of these other things to say for example, paint a room, or build something. You even know how find the perimeter, area, and volume to make an icecream cone! That is why we study cones.

Conclusion
In conclusion, cones are all around us in the world and help us with many things, we just don't notice them. They are great study tools and help us with learning how to find volume, area, surface area, perimeter, and many other things. I hope you learned and enjoyed everything we have said about cones.
