#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about spotting 2D shapes.

2D shapes are 2 dimensional shapes.

This just means that they can be drawn on paper.

Remember this is a square. It has four sides which are all the same length.

But this is also a square, even though it's been turned.

This is a rectangle. It has four sides. The opposite sides are the same length.

But this is also a rectangle, even though it's been turned.

This is a triangle. It has three sides.

This is a circle. It has only one side that goes all the way round.

Example

The picture is made from 2D shapes.

Which shapes can you see?

Remember to count the number of sides.

There is:

A yellow triangle

A white circle

A blue rectangle

The answer is a triangle, a circle and a rectangle.

Let's have a go at spotting some more shapes in the questions.
