#### How to Name Common Geometric Shapes ::Geometric shapes are the figures that have defined boundaries and feature the internal and external surface areas. In geometry, we come across different types of geometric figures. However, we can broadly categorize them as two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes.
Two-dimensional shapes are defined as the flat and plane figures, which typically feature two-dimensions, width, and length. Three-dimensional shapes are defined as the solid geometric figures, which typically feature three dimensions, height, width, and length. Unlike two-dimensional shapes, three-dimensional feature depth, and thickness.
Here we have defined the common geometric shapes that you are bound to come across.
**Circle** - Circle is one of the simplest two-dimensional shapes to name and identify. Unlike most geometric shapes, a circle does not feature any sides. A circle is a curve that is drawn equidistant from the center.
**Triangle** - As the name suggests, the triangle features three sides and three angles. To identify the triangle, we have to notice the polygons with three sides. They necessarily do not have to look the same. They can have sides and angles with varying measurements. Based on such differences, we name triangles as scalene, isosceles, and equilateral.
**Rectangle** - The rectangle features four sides and four right angles. You may confuse with other four-sided polygons, but to differentiate the rectangle from others, notice the four parallel opposite sides with four right angles.

These worksheets focus on reviewing different two-dimensional geometric shapes. When it comes to regular polygons: three-sided objects are triangles, four-sided objects are squares (sometimes rectangles), five-sided objects are pentagons, six-sided objects are hexagons, seven-sided objects are heptagons, eight-sided objects are octagons, nine-sided objects are nonagons, and ten-sided objects are decagons. These worksheets will start you out by identifying shapes and then towards the end you will be creating your own shapes. These worksheets explain how to identify geometric shapes based on the number of sides and corners and how to draw geometric shapes.
