Lesson Plan - Get It!
You already know your basic shapes: triangles, circles, squares, and rectangles. In this lesson, you will dig a little deeper and learn more about the basic shapes. Can you tell a parent or teacher how many sides a triangle has? Do you know how many sides a square has? See if you can count the sides on all the shapes below:
You already know all of your basic two-dimensional shapes!
During this lesson, you will review circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles.
Let's review the basic shapes before you begin the project.
A circle is round, has no sides, and is two-dimensional. There are pictures of circles below:
A square has four equal-length sides, four angles, and is two-dimensional:
A triangle has three sides, three angles, and is a two-dimensional shape. Look at the triangles below:
A rectangle has four sides (two of the sides are different lengths), four angles, and is two-dimensional:
