Geometry Learning

During 2nd grade, children are introduced to a wider range of 2d and 3d shapes.

Children also start to look more closely at the properties shapes have to categorise them. Symmetry is introduced at this level, and children learn to find lines of symmetry by folding shapes or using mirrors. Children are encouraged to look more closely at shapes to recognise the differences between how the shapes are made up. Curved sides and straight sides in 2 dimensions, and curved and flat surfaces in 3 dimensions are identified.

At a 2nd grade level, children should learn to:

  • categorise triangles into right, equilateral and isosceles special cases;
  • categorise members of the quadrilateral family according to their properties;
  • identify a range of 3d shapes such as cylinders, spheres, cones, prisms and cuboids;
  • identify lines of symmetry;
  • identify a shape which has been flipped or folded.

Geometry Worksheets

2D Shapes Worksheets

The worksheets on this page are all about identifying different 2d shapes.

The main focus is on identifying triangles, but other 2d shapes are also explored.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • name a range of 2d shapes;
  • identify different types of triangles;
  • learn some simple properties of 2d shapes;
  • recognise 2d shapes in different orientations.

Transformation Worksheets (2d)

This webpage is all about identifying different transformations for 2d shapes.

Transformations on 2d shapes are explored in the following areas:

  • enlarging;
  • reducing;
  • reflecting or flipping;
  • rotating or turning.

Using these sheets will help your child to explore and identify different transformations that can be done on 2d shapes.

3D Shape Worksheets

Here you will find our 3d shape worksheets for second graders. The sheets involve naming and noticing some of the properties that 3d shapes have.

Using the sheets in this section will help your child to:

  • learn the name of common 3d shapes;
  • learn to recognise some of the simple properties that 3d shapes;
  • categorise the 3d shapes by different criteria.

All the sheets in this section will help your child to become more familiar with many of the 3d shapes around them, and learn about some of their properties.

Geometry Riddles

Using riddles is a fun and interesting way to see whether your child can apply their geometry knowledge to solve problems. The riddles in this section are all about 2d and 3d shapes, and your child has to identify the correct shape from a selection based on the information in the riddle.

Using the sheets in this section will help your child to:

  • apply their geometry knowledge to solve a range of problems.

All the sheets in this section will help your child to apply and consolidate their geometry learning.

Shape Puzzles

Using shape puzzles is a great way to explore geometry and concepts involving shapes such as recognising shapes in different orientations.

Many of these puzzles will also involve finding all possibilities of a solution and being able to record solutions clearly and systematically.

Using the sheets will help your child to:

  • recognise shapes in different orientations;
  • record systematically and clearly;
  • understand the properties of 2d shapes;
  • find all possibilities of a solution.

These math puzzles printable will also hopefully help to develop accurate drawing and recording skills.

Geometry Resources

In this section you will find links to our printable shape worksheets and other geometry resources.

Many of these resources are on our parent site, math-salamanders.com
