Students must use the clues they are given about shapes A-D to draw them accurately. The clues require students to understand the names of shapes; vertices; parallel lines; regular shapes and know angle properties of triangles and quadrilaterals. Nice main activity if you allow students to work in pairs you can get some good discussion. Could be printed on A5 to minimise photocopying; or displayed on the IWB.

Interesting way to assess students' understanding of 2-D shapes.

A really good resource that will challenge student's understanding of shape properties. They are given clues about various shapes and have to work out the name of each shape. Thanks!
