#### United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

• ##### K.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• K.G.5 – Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

• K.G.6 – Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”

• ##### 1.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 1.G.2 – Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.(Students do not need to learn formal names such as “right rectangular prism.”)

• ##### 4.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 4.G.3 – Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
