Free | 20 pages (PDF)|Grades: K, 1 - 5

A set of 2-D and 3-D figure cards to assist with your students’ understanding of shapes and their attributes.

Use this set of 20 figure cards to help your students identify different figures by name and sort according to their attributes. They can be used in whole group, small group, or math center activities. Simply print and laminate for durability.

This resource includes the following 2-D and 3-D figures:

• circle
• square
• rectangle
• equilateral triangle
• right triangle
• pentagon
• hexagon
• heptagon
• octagon
• nonagon
• decagon
• rhombus
• trapezoid
• sphere
• square pyramid
• triangular prism
• rectangular prism
• cylinder
• cube
• cone.

#### Common Core Curriculum alignment

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.A.2

Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.A.3

Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.B.4

Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having s...

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.1

Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.1

Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.G.A.1

Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangl...

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.2

Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.3

Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.3

Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.4

Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties. #### Find more resources for these topics
