2nd Grade - Flat And Solid Shapes

 Grade Level: 2nd Skill: Measurement and Geometry Topic: Flat and Solid Shapes Goal: Describe and classify plane and solid geometric shapes (e.g., circle, triangle, square, rectangle, sphere, pyramid, cube, rectangular prism) according to the number and shape of faces, edges, and vertices. Skill Description: Identify shapes of common objects. Identify faces, vertices, and edges of solid shapes; sort solid objects by faces, edges, and vertices. Relate solid shapes and plane shapes. Identify and count vertices and sides of shapes. Use shapes, such as pattern blocks, to make new shapes. Identify the movement of a shape as a slide, flip, or turn. Recognize and draw congruent figures.

Sample Problems

 (1) Sara drew a plane shape that had 4 sides and 4 vertices. Name two shapes that Sara could have drew. Draw the shapes. ____________________ ____________________ (2) Use the words from the word box to write the name of each solid shape. Write the name of each solid shape underneath the picture. _________ __________ __________ __________ Word Box pyramid sphere cube cone cylinder rectangular prism (3) I can roll. I have not corners, faces, edges. What solid shape am I? __________________ (sphere) (4) Circle the objects that have the same shape. (5) Draw lines to match the shapes in Column A to the definitions in Column B. Column A Column B cylinder A solid figure with faces shaped like triangles that meet at a vertex. cube A solid figure with one face shaped like a circle. pyramid A solid figure with two faces that are congruent circles cone A solid figure with six square faces.
