## Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 2 programme of study
• KS1.Y2.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Y2.G.PS.2 – Identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces

• ##### Year 5 programme of study
• KS2.Y5.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y5.G.PS.1 – Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 4.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by two features simultaneously

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

• 5.GM.5 – Draw plan, front, and side views of objects

• ##### 6.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 6.GM.3 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes (including prisms), considering given properties simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

• 6.GM.6 – Draw or make objects, given their plan, front, and side views

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 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.”)

• ##### 2.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 2.G.1 – Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
