Shapes and objects: Year 7 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 7 is for the topic of Shapes and objects. Students build on their knowledge of two-dimensional shapes. They classify triangles according to their side length (scalene, isosceles, equilateral) and their angle properties (right, acute, obtuse). Students identify and describe different quadrilaterals (square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium and kite) in terms of their side length, parallel edges and equal angles. Students also investigate the angle sum of a triangle and quadrilateral.
