Here students will get a chance to learn about 2d shapes in class 2. They also know about the terms zero-dimension, one dimension, two dimensions, and three dimensions. of different 2d shapes in geometry. Also, learn about the properties of 2d shapes.

In this learning concept, the students will also learn about the different types of 2d shapes:

- Triangle Shape Things
- Square Shape Things
- Rectangle Shape Things
- Circle Shape Things

Each concept is explained to class 2 maths students using illustrations, examples, and mind maps. You can assess your learning by solving the two printable worksheets at the pages’ end.

Download the two-dimensional shape worksheet for class 2 and check the solutions for 2d shapes provided in PDF format.

**Dimension Meaning in Maths**

In simple words, dimension is the measurement of the length, width, and height of an object.

An object can be

- Zero Dimensional: It defines only location.
- One Dimensional: It has only length.
- Two Dimensional: It has two dimensions – length and width.
- Three Dimensional: It has three dimensions – length, width, and height.

**Properties of 2d Shapes**

Two-dimensional shapes or objects are flat plane figures that have only two dimensions – length and width. These shapes do not have any thickness. Here we will discuss two-dimensional shapes like

- Triangles
- Squares
- Rectangles
- Circles

##

**Triangle Shape Things**

A triangle is a flat two-dimensional shape (2-D shape) with three corners and three sides.

Following are examples of triangles that can be seen in our surroundings. We can see triangles in traffic signals and the flags at the top of the temples.

##

**Square Shape Things**

A square is a flat two-dimensional shape (2-D shape) with four corners and four sides. In a square, all the sides are of the same size.

Following are some examples of squares that can be seen in our surroundings. We can see squares on the chess board, bread pieces, snake and ladder game board,… etc.

##

**Rectangle Shape Things**

A rectangle is a flat two-dimensional shape (2-D shape) with four corners and four sides. One pair of opposite sides are short and another pair of opposite sides are long. In a rectangle, the opposite pairs of sides are the same in size.

Following are some examples of rectangles that can be seen in our surroundings. We can see rectangles on the TV screen, chocolate .… etc.

##

**Circle Shape Things**

A Circle is a flat two-dimensional shape (2-D shape) with no corners and no sides.

Following are some examples of circles that can be seen in our surroundings. We can see circles on the plate, coin, pizza … etc.
