**2-D shapes - third and fourth class **

Content for third class

*The child should be enabled to*

- Identify, describe and classify 2-D shapes: square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon, circle, semicircle, oval and irregular shapes?
- Explore, describe and compare the properties (sides, angles, parallel and non-parallel lines) of 2-D shapes?
- Construct and draw 2-D shapes?

*Use templates, stencils, geostrips, geoboards*etc. - Combine, tessellate and make patterns with 2-D shapes e.g.
*cover surfaces with 2-D shapes that tessellate or do not tessellate.*

Identify properties that facilitate or hinder tessellation.*Combine shapes to make patterns?* - Identify the use of 2-D shapes in the environment e.g.
*buildings, road signs, printing, household objects*etc? - Solve and complete practical tasks and problems involving 2-D shapes.
