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 States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 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.

• ##### 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.

• ##### 3.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

• ##### 5.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 5.G.3 – Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.

• 5.G.4 – Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Shape

• ACMMG042 – Describe and draw two-dimensional shapes, with and without digital technologies

## 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

• ##### 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

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 3 programme of study
• KS2.Y3.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y3.G.PS.1 – Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them
