Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will feed shapes into a simple tree diagram to see where they exit.

 

Look at this example in which we feed a circle in at the top.

We start at the top with the question: 'Does the shape have right angles?'

 

A circle does not have right angles, so the answer is 'No'.

 

We follow the 'No' arrow and the next question is 'Are any sides curved?'

 

A circle has all its sides curved, so the answer is 'Yes'.

 

We follow the 'Yes' arrow and it takes us to the letter C.

 

So the circle ends up at C because it is curved and has no right angles.

 

Let's try this with some other shapes in the questions!
