Look around you. What do you see? Do you see the sun, the infinite expanse that is the sky, or do you see a bus, a kite, or something else? Look beyond the obvious, what do you see? Shapes! We are surrounded by a multitude of shapes. From the round sun and the moon to a rectangular door, shapes are everywhere. The shape of things is one of the properties that help us perceive the world around us. We differentiate between two different things by their properties. These properties are color, size, and shape.
In this edition, we bring to you these posters to surround your kids with different shapes and their properties. The posters are of the most common shapes that we find around ourselves. Download the posters and help kids learn and identify the shapes.
The first poster is that of a circle. The distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle is its radius. A cricket ball is circular in shape.
The next poster is of a triangle. It is a shape made up of three lines. Based on the length of the sides and the angles, there are three types of triangles; scalene triangle, isosceles triangle, and equilateral triangle.
The following poster is of a square. It is a shape with four equal parallel lines. If you look around you might see one or two picture frames that are squares.
Next up is a rectangle. While it is made up of four parallel lines just like a square a rectangle is different from a square since unlike a square a rectangle has unequal adjacent sides.
The oval shape can be described as a stretched circle. An egg is oval in shape.
Download the posters and ask kids to read them and memorize the properties of each shape. It is a good practice to refer to objects that you can find around yourself to give kids the proper idea of shapes. Once done, you can also ask them to name a few objects that they think are shaped like a square, circle, and so on. Get started now.
You can find several such posters along with several unique flashcards, worksheets, coloring books, and more on our website. We upload a variety of them encompassing subjects such as mathematics, science, general knowledge, on a daily basis. Be sure to visit our website and browse for the ones you need.
