LO To count sides of 2D shapes


Today we are counting sides of 2D shapes.   I find it easier if I put a mark through each side I have counted. This helps me to make sure I don't count a side twice.  Not all 2D shapes look the same, we can have a three triangles that all look completely different.



2* Complete the worksheet counting the labelling and counting the sides of shapes.

3* Complete the worksheet and the Diving Deeper questions.


Watch my video below for how to complete today's lesson.
