Spatial sense is an important cognitive skill for children. They start to look at the world as a space full of shapes. In this lesson, kids distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes, as well as use formal language to describe shapes.
See the fact file below for more information on the reasoning with shapes and their attributes or alternatively, you can download our 26-page Reasoning with Shapes and their Attributes worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
ATTRIBUTES OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL SHAPES
- 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.
- An edge is a line segment connecting one vertex to another.
- A vertex or corner is a point where two line segments meet.
ATTRIBUTES OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL SHAPES
- Right-angle triangle. Two sides can be equal, and the angle between the two sides is 90 degrees.
- Equilateral triangle. All three sides are equal, and the angle between the two adjacent sides is 60 degrees.
- Scalene triangle. All three sides are unequal, and one of the angles between the two sides is more than 90 degrees.
- Quadrilateral. Any shape that has four sides and four vertices. This includes the square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram, and trapezoid.
- Square. A shape that has four equal sides and four right angles.
- Rectangle. A shape that has four sides and four right angles.
- Rhombus. A shape that has four equal sides and no right angles.
- Parallelogram. A shape that has four sides with opposite sides parallel and equal.
- Trapezoid. A shape with four sides and one pair of parallel sides.
ATTRIBUTES OF SHAPES
- Pentagon. A shape that has five sides and five vertices.
- Hexagon. A shape that has six sides and six vertices.
- Heptagon. A shape that has seven sides and seven vertices.
- 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.
- Decomposing shapes means partitioning or breaking them apart.
