## 🟡 🟪 2D Shapes Worksheet – Sort Familiar Shapes in the Environment🔺🔶

Using this set of three Maths worksheets, students learn to recognise 2D shapes in their environment by comparing and contrasting the features of various shapes displayed. Students will cut, sort, and paste into place, various examples of triangles, squares, rectangles and circles which appear in real life.

Use this worksheet after explicitly teaching the features of various 2D shapes in our environment. Students will then cut, sort and paste the pictures of everyday objects into the correct category of 2D shape.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

Students who are working above-grade level can explore the more complex shapes included in the worksheets, such as oval, hexagon, pentagon, rhombus and kite.

Students who need extra support can focus on the first worksheet, which has the most basic 2D shapes.. Students requiring scaffolding could complete this worksheet first before progressing to more complicated shapes with some similar features.
