# 2D Shapes Worksheets – New & Engaging

2D Shapes worksheets for key stage 3 and key stage 4 gcse maths. 2D shapes worksheets in a pdf containing questions and answers which are in a table format. 2D Shapes worksheet 1 investigates properties of quadrilaterals using a cutting out and sorting exercise. 2D Shapes worksheet 2 asks students to identify same and different properties of quadrilaterals. 2D Shapes worksheet 3 finds attributes of 2D Shapes as well as quadrilaterals, including triangles and regular polygons. 2D Shapes worksheet 4 gets students to shade quadrilaterals. 2D Shapes worksheet 5 asks students to measure the interior angles inside the 2D Shape.

## Naming 2D Shapes

The image below shows the names of nine 2d Shapes: Square, Triangle, Rectangle, Trapezium, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Kite and Hexagon. A Square, Rectangle, Trapezium, Parallelogram, Rhombus and Kite have four sides. A Triangle has 3 sides and a Hexagon has 6 sides. Four sided-shapes are known as quadrilaterals. ## 2D Shapes Key Words

2D Shapes key words include parallel, opposite, straight, adjacent, diagonal, right angle, isosceles, sides, equal, length and width. A kite for example has equal adjacent sides. Other important words include scalene, equilateral, and perpendicular. ## 2D Shapes Angle Sums

The image below shows six 2D shapes and the total sum of their angles. Find out more about this topic: polygons. ## Properties of 2D Shapes

The image below shows the properties of 2D Shapes. The table includes at least two properties for each 2D shape.

A square has four equal sides and 4 lines of symmetry. A rectangle has 2 pairs of equal sides and 2 lines of symmetry. A triangle has 3 vertices, or corners. A trapezium has 4 vertices and 1 pair of parallel sides. A trapezium may have 1 line of symmetry.

A parallelogram and a rhombus have 2 pairs of parallel sides. A rhombus has 2 lines of symmetry a parallelogram has 0. The adjacent sides of a kite are equal, and a kite has 1 line of symmetry.
