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:

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...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

Identify two-dimensional shapes, including circles, triangles, rectangles,
and squares, as special rectangles, rhombuses, and hexagons and describe their
attributes using formal geometric language;

Identify three-dimensional
solids, including spheres, cones, cylinders, rectangular prisms (including cubes),
and triangular prisms, and describe their attributes using formal geometric
language;

Classify and sort three-dimensional
solids, including spheres, cones, cylinders, rectangular prisms (including cubes as special
rectangular prisms), and triangular prisms, based on attributes
using formal geometric language;

Classify and sort two- and three-dimensional
figures, including cones, cylinders,
spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms,
and cubes, based
on attributes using formal geometric language;

Use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms,
trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples
of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories;

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.

Geometry and measurement. The student applies
mathematical process standards to classify two-dimensional figures by attributes
and properties. The student is expected to classify two-dimensional figures
in a hierarchy of sets and subsets ...
