Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be looking at the properties of shapes. 

We will have to decide which statement is true about the shape given. 

Try to think about how many sides and corners the shape has to help you. 

 

Example

 

Which statement is true about this shape?

CIRCLE

It has 4 sides

It does not have 4 sides

 

The circle is the shape that looks like the sun!
