There are so many different and interesting things in the world!

If we look around, we can see squares, circles, and triangles. We can see animals like cats, dogs, and birds!

We can see and taste different foods like apples, oranges, cookies, and more! Yum!


The things we see every day all around us have special groups to which they belong.

We can sort them into their special groups!

These groups have special names.

Let's learn more together!

  • Do you see the circle?


  • Do you see the square?


  • Do you see the triangle?


  • How are these things (circles, squares, and triangles) the same?

They are all shapes!
