About the Worksheet

This interactive and printable worksheet, titled "Comparing 2D and 3D Shapes" is a valuable educational resource for teaching students about geometric shapes and their properties. This interactive and printable resource is designed to help students identify and classify shapes based on their characteristics, such as the number of vertices, equal sides, and the absence of sides or vertices. The worksheet presents various shapes, and students are required to cut and paste them into the correct categories. This hands-on activity not only reinforces their understanding of shape properties but also enhances their motor skills and visual-spatial awareness.

What will your child learn through this worksheet?

Through this worksheet, your child will learn:
  • To identify and classify 2D and 3D shapes based on their properties
  • To recognize the number of vertices (corners) in a shape
  • To distinguish between shapes with equal sides and unequal sides
  • To differentiate between shapes with sides and vertices, and those without
