### Introduction

Students learned about basic shapes in Grade 1. They sorted them by characteristics, used them to compose larger shapes, and used them to start exploring fractions. Now students identify shapes by specific attributes (sides, angles), begin identifying three-dimensional shapes, and continue their exploration of fractions.

### Worksheets (all activites are free, printable PDFs)

#### Two-Dimensional Shapes

In the worksheets below, students sort, identify, and draw shapes based on given characteristics such as the number of sides or angles.

#### Identify Shapes Based on Sides

Students choose a shape based on the number of sides it has.

2.G.A.1

#### Identify Shapes Based on Angles

Students choose a shape based on the number of angles it has.

2.G.A.1

#### Draw Shapes Based on Sides

Students draw shapes with a given number of sides.

2.G.A.1

#### Draw Shapes Based on Angles

Students draw shapes with a given number of angles.

2.G.A.1

#### Name Shapes

Students identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons and hexagons.

2.G.A.1

#### Three-Dimensional Shapes

Students sort, identify, and draw shapes based on given characteristics such as the number of sides or angles.

#### Identify Shapes

Students identify cubes, rectangular prisms, cones, and cylinders.

2.G.A.1

#### Identify Shapes Based on Faces

Students count faces on three-dimensional shapes and write the name of each shape.

2.G.A.1

#### Build Shapes

Students select the three-dimensional shapes needed to build figures.

2.G.A.1

#### Fractions

Students divide shapes into equal parts and describe parts using fraction language. This is skill is
foundational for the understanding of a fraction representing a part of a whole.

#### Count the Number of Parts

Students are given a rectangle divided into an equal number of columns and rows. They count the parts the whole rectangle is divided into.

2.G.A.2

#### Rows and Columns

Students divide a rectangle into a given number of rows and columns. Then they count the parts the whole rectangle is divided into.

2.G.A.2

#### Rectangle Parts

Students divide a rectangle into 2, 3, or 4 equal parts.

2.G.A.3

#### Circle Parts

Students divide a circle into 2, 3, or 4 equal parts.

2.G.A.3

#### Fractions of a Whole

Students describe a rectangle or circle by how many parts it has and the size of those parts (e.g. four fourths).

2.G.A.3

#### Describe One Part

Students describe one part of a rectangle or circle that has been cut into 2, 3 or 4 equal parts.
