# 2d Shapes Worksheets Identifying 2d Shapes

Welcome to the 2nd Grade Math Salamanders 2d Shapes Worksheets page.

Here you will find our selection of free shape worksheets to help you child to recognise and name some of the 2d shapes they will meet at 2nd grade.

The main focus on this page is the identification of different types of triangles: equilateral, isosceles and scalene, as well as right, acute and obtuse.

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.
