Flashcard Content Overview
This flashcard set lists many of the most common shapes you find all around you. A shape is the outward appearance of something or someone. When you look around you can find a commonly known shape in almost everything. Building a house involves piecing together many different types of shapes. Some houses are rectangular, while others are square with a triangular shape at the top. There are even houses that have been built in the shape of a hexagon. It is pretty cool what types of things can be created using basic shapes.
Shapes can be put into 2 different categories. Some shapes are 2 dimensional (2-D), while other shapes are 3 dimensional (3-D). A 2-D shape is one that is on a flat plane, that has a length and width. A 3-D shape is a touchable shape that has a length, width, and height. This set of flashcards will include shapes that are 2-D as well as shapes that are 3-D. You will learn the name of many common shapes you may have heard of like a circle, square, or triangle. It will also include less common shapes like a trapezoid, regular decagon, and a cuboid.
