# What shapes should 3rd graders know?

## What shapes should 3rd graders know?

The 2-dimensional shapes covered in third grade include circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses and trapezoids. You may include as many other shapes – such as pentagons and octagons – as you wish.

## What is geometry 3rd grade?

Our grade 3 geometry worksheets review two dimensional shapes, particularly circles, triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons. We also focus on the definition and classification of lines and angles. The areas and perimeters of rectangular shapes are reviewed, as are the concepts of congruency and symmetry.

### Do 3rd graders learn geometry?

Geometry. Students will fous on two-dimensional shapes. Third and fourth graders categorize, analyze, and compare different properties of 2-D polygons. They look at the numbers of sides and angles and learn how to define these polygons.

### Is geometry taught in 3rd grade?

Geometry is an important concept to teach in third grade. Students are learning about different types of shapes that are in the same category, such as quadrilaterals.
