A fun match-up activity to consolidate your students’ knowledge of 2D shapes and their properties.
In this teaching resource, students match 2D shapes and properties.
Ways to use this shape activity:

- Print out the 2D Shape Match mat. Hang it on a magnetic board. Give the students a set of shape magnets to use. The students will place the matching magnetic shape inside each box.
This activity works well as a maths warm-up or when students are working in small groups.
