Shape, Position and Movement

2D Shape Reveal
An interactive whiteboard resource to help with the teaching and learning of the names and properties of 2D shapes.

Shape Patterns
Shape Patterns is a sequencing game where children from 3 to 8 years of age need to complete the pattern of different coloured 2D shapes. Three levels of difficulty.

Symmetry Matching
Symmetry matching game involving mirroring pictures, shapes and patterns along lines of symmetry. Suitable for 4  8 year olds.

Symmetry Sorting
Sort the pictures, shapes and letters into symmetrical and not symmetrical sets.

2D Shapes Sorting Using Carroll Diagrams
Sort 2D shapes on Carroll diagrams. There are four levels of difficulty and sorting is by two variable criteria. Squares are classed as rectangles as they are special case rectangles.

Artistic Angles
A tutorial which explains different types of angles, their names and how the size of angles can be worked out, such as on a straight line.

Demonstrate Coordinates
A teaching tool which shows how to use coordinates in one, two, or three quadrants. Drag the markers around and their respective coordinates will be updates.

Area Builder
A fabulous teaching aid and learning game site on areas, perimeter and fractions of shapes. You can toggle between one or two display areas which is useful if you want to compare different shapes.

Area Perimeter Explorer
Create your own shapes with blocks and explore the relationship between perimeter and area. A useful teaching tool for demonstrating irregular shapes.

Area and Perimeter
A teaching tool for demonstrating area and perimeter on an interactive whiteboard. Drag out rectangles to show different examples.

Area and Perimeter of Rectangles
A teaching tool to help the understanding of area and perimeter of rectangles. Both area and perimeter can be shown or hidden.

Sorting Shapes on a Venn Diagram
Sort a variety of 2D shapes on a Venn diagram. Sort by one or two conditions.

Symmetry Shapes
A teaching resource for demonstrating symmetry on IWBs and iPads.

ITP Coordinates
This resource from Mathsframe allows you to use a marker to identify the coordinates of points on different grids. You can mark points and draw lines and shapes in either 1, 2 or 4 quadrants.

ITP Fixpoints  Using a Protractor
Create angles using a grid and then measure them using the protractor. Their values can be displayed or hidden. For reflex interior angles the value of the exterior angle is shown.

Tessellation Creator
A teacher demonstration tool to show how shapes or combinations of shapes tesselate. Shapes can be dragged and rotated.

Geometric Solids
A teaching tool which is good for learning about solid shapes and their properties. Explore the number of faces, edges and vertices. There are lesson plans which demonstrate how the tool can be used.

2D Shapes Class Clips
A BBC presentation where the climbing frame makes itself into various shapes  a cube, triangular prism, squarebased pyramid and a regular tetrahedron. The clip describes the properties of the shapes.

Interactive Teaching Program on Area
This interactive teaching tool can be used in a variety of mathematical contexts such as multiplication arrays, finding different shapes with the same area, nets and more. It is useful because there are different backgrounds such as dots.

Home Improvement
A tutorial which explains how to find the area of squares and rectangles. There are examples for you to try to work out.

An Unfolding Mystery
A tutorial about how to recognise the nets of a cube.

Reflecting in the Axes
A tutorial showing how simple shapes are reflected in both the x and y axes.

Basic Angles
An angle activity with an online protractor. This is a flexible manipulative for teaching about angles which is excellent on an interactive whiteboard. There is a video tutorial explaining its use.
