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.

Transformation Geometry Worksheets

The following webpage involves learning about the different ways that a 2d shape can be transformed.

At this stage, the most important thing that children are able to do is to spot when a shape has been transformed, and which transformation has been used.

At a 2nd grade level, it is not important for children to be able to perform the transformations, they just need to be able to spot them!

Congruent shapes are also explored.

A congruent shape is a shape which is identical to another shape but has been rotated or flipped or slid into a different position.

The sides and angles on congruent shapes are equal.

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

  • recognise shapes which are congruent to each other;
  • recognise which transformation has been used to transform one shape into another;
  • recognise enlarging, reducing, reflecting or flipping, rotating or turning.

All the geometry worksheets in this section will help your child to learn more about how shapes can be transformed.

Transformation Worksheets (2d)

There are 2 separate sections of worksheets: shape matching and transformation spotting worksheets.

The shape matching worksheets explore shape congruence and spotting when one shape is identical to another which has been turned or flipped.

The transformation geometry worksheets are all about spotting the transformation which has turned one shape into another.

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.

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.

2D Shape Clipart

Here you will find a selection of 2D shape sheets designed to help your child learn their names and properties of 2d shapes.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • recognise a range of 2D shapes;
  • recognise that a square is also a member of the rectangle family;
  • recognise shapes in different orientations and sizes.

All the free printable shape sheets in this section support Elementary Math benchmarks.

3D Shape Clipart

Here you will find a selection of 3D shape sheets designed to help your child learn their names and properties of 3d shapes.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • recognise a range of 3D shapes;
  • know some of the properties of different 3D shapes;
  • recognise 3d shapes in different orientations and sizes.

All the free printable shape sheets in this section support Elementary Math benchmarks.
