**2D shapes**

- 2 D shapes are plane figures.
- 2 D shapes are closed figures.

### Triangle

- Triangle is a 2 D figure that has only 3 sides and 3 vertices.

### Circle

- Circle is a 2 D figure that has 0 sides and 0 vertices.

### Rectangle

- Rectangles are 2 D figures with 4 sides and 4 vertices.

### Square

- Squares are special rectangles with all four sides equal in length.

- You can use shapes to make pictures.

### a. Half of an object

- A shape can be divided into equal parts also.
- When a shape is divided into 2 equal parts, each part is called a
**half**.

### b. Halves to 1 whole

- Two halves of a figure make 1 whole.

**Example:** 2 halves of a rectangle make 1 whole rectangle.

### c. Quarter of a figure

- When a shape is divided into 4 equal parts, each part is called a
**fourth**or a**quarter.**

**Example: **The rectangle is divided into 4 quarters.

### d. Quarters to 1 whole

- Four quarters of a figure make 1 whole.

**Example:** 4 quarters of a circle make 1 whole circle.

### e. Quarter Vs Half

- Two quarters of a figure make 1 half.

- The circle with fourths has smaller shares. The circle with halves has fewer shares.

## Exercise

Q: Draw a line to cut the circle into half.

Q: Shade only one quarter of the given figure.

Q: Paint two fourths of the figure in green.

Q: How many parts do we get when we cut a figure into quarters?

Q: Cut the figure into two halves.
