It’s a while since I sent anything up for children in year 3 and for shape so here is a worksheet just for them!
The best way to go about this is to have some plastic or card shapes: rectangles and right angled triangles. If not, the worksheet can be printed out on to card and the shapes cut out.
It is quite possible to make all the polygons mentioned on the worksheet, and in fact an extension activity could be to make a shape with the most possible number of sides.
it is important to let children experiment with shape whilst using the correct language. Don’t be afraid to call a six sided shape a hexagon and remember that the sides do not all have to be the same length – this only applies to a regular hexagon.
