    Any chance we can have an alternative resource using the word vertices instead of corners? Also in the matching the cloud with the shape activity for the rectangle - rather than saying a shape with 4 sides of different lengths it would be more accurate to say that I have 2 sides that are longer than the other 2 sides.....

      Hi Stephanie, We have used corners in this instance as they relate directly to the curriculum codes for 2D shapes and 3D objects in year 2: https://www.teachstarter.com/australian-curriculum-categories/mathematics/mathematics-2/mathematics-2-measurement-and-geometry/ https://www.teachstarter.com/australian-curriculum-categories/mathematics/mathematics-2/mathematics-2-measurement-and-geometry/ Also, in the instructions for identifying shapes the identifiers; "I have 4 sides of different lengths and 4 corners", are for finding the shape which corresponds to these parameters, not necessarily the definition of a rectangle.

    Hi Michelle, Thank you for your comment. We have updated this resource to reflect these changes. Kind regards Jill

    This resource needs updating - we dont use the word edge for a shape with a curved surface. Thanks M
