# Free Geometry Worksheets Geometry Riddles

Welcome to the 2nd Grade Math Salamanders Free Geometry Worksheets page.

Here you will find our range of free Geometry riddles for elementary kids from 1st to 5th grade. These fun riddles will help your child to develop their 2d and 3d shape skills and language, whilst developing their problem solving and reasoning skills at the same time.

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.

Extension Activity Ideas

If you are looking for a way to extend learning with these free Geometry worksheets, why not try these...

• Get children to work in partners with one child choosing one of the shapes and the other child asking 'yes/no' questions. E.g. Does it have 4 sides? Are there any right angles? Does it have any square faces? ... etc
• Children could write their own set of clues down to identify one of the shapes.
