Sorting 2D shapes on a Venn diagram
Sort a variety of 2D shapes on a Venn diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.
**2nd May 2013 - I have updated this game as somebody has rightly pointed out to me that equilateral triangles are also isosceles. My apologies for the error.**

New Maths Curriculum:
Year 2: Compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects
Year 3: Recognise angles as a property of shape and associate angles with turning
Year 4: Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes
Year 5: Distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles
Year 6: Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
KS2 Primary Framework:
Relate 2-D shapes and 3-D solids to drawings of them; describe, visualise, classify, draw and make the shapes (Block B)
Draw polygons and classify them by identifying their properties, including their line symmetry (Block B)
Identify, visualise and describe properties of rectangles, triangles, regular polygons (Block B)
Describe, identify and visualise parallel and perpendicular edges or faces; use these properties to classify 2-D shapes and 3-D solids (Block B)
