Shapes are everywhere! A few basic shaped include a rectangle, circle, triangle and octagon. There are many more than just these four but in this lesson we will focus on how often you see these four shapes!
1) A RECTANGLE is a 4 sided figure with 4 right angles. The sides are not all the same length, the two sides parallel to each other are the same length and the other 2 parallel sides are also the same length. If all the sides were the same, it would be a square.
2) A CIRCLE is a shape with a set of points in a plane that are a given distance from a given point (the center of the circle).
3) A triangle is a 3 sided figure with 3 corners or vertices.
4) An OCTAGON is a polygon with 8 sides of the same length and 8 angles the same size.
I hope you learned a lot about four of the basic shapes we see each and every day and next your outside, see how many shapes you can find!
