  • 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:
