Shapes all around

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning all about shape, measurement and location. All of the 1-2 classes have been hunting for shapes in our school yard. Here’s what we found:


Squares have four equal sides and four corners.


Circles are round and have zero corners.


Rectangles have four sides – two short sides and two long sides. 


Triangles have three sides and three corners.


Octagons have eight sides, just like an OCTopus has eight legs!

Rectangular Prisms

Rectangular prisms are 3D objects. They are made up of 6 rectangles.


Cylinders are 3D objects with a circle at each end.
