Understanding shapes involves analyzing two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, knowing how to create or draw these shapes, and understanding the connection between each shape. Below are some ways to help young learners understand shapes.
See the fact file below for more information on the analyzing and creating shapes or alternatively, you can download our 30-page Analyzing and Creating Shapes worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- Two-dimensional shapes can be analyzed through their number of sides or edges, corners or vertices, and the characteristic of the lines, whether straight or curved.
- The first shape, a square, has a straight edge, while the second shape, a circle, has a curved edge.
- Below are some shapes and the number of edges they have.
- Even though the circle has a curved edge, it is still considered as a shape with no sides, since in the definition, an edge must connect one vertex to another. Thus, a circle has no edges.
- Three-dimensional shapes also have edges, and corners or vertices. In addition, three-dimensional shapes also have faces.
- A face is any of the individual flat surfaces of a solid object or of a three-dimensional shape.
- Just like in two-dimensional shapes, the corners and edges of a three-dimensional shape can also be identified.
TWO-DIMENSIONAL AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL SHAPES
- We can analyze a two-dimensional shape by understanding its edges and corners/vertices. On the other hand, we can analyze a three-dimensional shape by understanding its edges, corners/vertices, and faces.
- There are also other ways that we can analyze shapes, for example the length of the sides.
- Combining shapes results in another shape.
- For example, combining 2 triangles can result in a square.
- Another example is combining 2 squares to form a rectangle.
- There are more shapes that can be created by combining different shapes.
- The best way for young learners to fully understand how to analyze shapes and how to create shapes is by letting them practice by completing activities.
