## Basics on the topicDrawing Shapes— Let's Practise

Let Razzi help you practise drawing shapes like triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles!

### TranscriptDrawing Shapes— Let's Practise

Razzi says get a pencil and paper ready because today we're going to practice Drawing Shapes! It's time to begin! Let's start by drawing a three-sided TRIANGLE! Razzi's triangle starts at the top and comes down diagonally, then goes straight across the bottom, and then joins back up to the top. Now try it on your paper!

Did you make a triangle? Let's draw another shape! This time let's make a SQUARE with EQUAL sides! Razzi's square goes straight down, straight across, back up and back across. Now it's your turn, try to make each side equal!

Did you draw a square? Let's draw a round circle now! Razzi's circle starts at the top and curves all the way back around. Now it's your turn to try!

How did your circle come out? Let's try one more a four sided RECTANGLE! Razzi's rectangle starts with a shorter line down, a longer line straight across, back up with a shorter line, then back across with a longer line. Now it's your turn to try!

Did you make a rectangle too? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

## Drawing Shapes— Let's Practise exercise

Would you like to apply the knowledge you’ve learnt? You can review and practice it with the tasks for the video Drawing Shapes— Let's Practise.
• ### Name the shapes.

Hints

When Razzi drew a circle, it was round.

When Razzi drew a triangle, he drew three sides.

When Razzi drew a square, he made sure all four sides were the same length.

Solution

The image shows the correct name of each shape that Razzi drew.

• You can identify a triangle because it has three sides.
• You can identify a square because it has four equal sides.
• You can identify a circle because it is curved all the way around.
• You can identify a rectangle because it has four sides (two shorter sides and two longer sides).
• ### How do we draw these shapes?

Hints

Practise tracing the triangle with your finger. Do any lines lean?

Practise tracing the square with your finger. Are all of the sides the same length?

Practise tracing the circle with your finger. Do you move your finger in a straight line or a curved line?

Practise tracing the rectangle with your finger. Are all of the sides the same length?

Solution

Here are the directions for drawing shapes. Get out your pencil and paper. Follow along and practise drawing each shape.

• A triangle leans on the way down, goes straight across and leans on the way back up.
• A square goes straight down, straight across, back up and back across. All of the sides are the same length.
• A circle starts at the top and curves all the way back round.
• A rectangle goes straight down a little bit, straight across a lot, back up a little, then back across a lot.
• ### Find shapes in real world objects.

Hints

A triangle is a shape with three sides. To draw it, lean on the way down, go straight across and lean on the way back up.

A circle is a round shape. To draw it, start at the top and curve all the way back round.

A square is a shape with four equal sides. To draw it, go straight down, straight across, back up and back across. Double check that all of your sides are equal length.

A rectangle is a shape with four sides. To draw it, go straight down a little bit, straight across a lot, back up a little and then back across a lot.

Solution

Grab a pencil and paper. Try to draw your own shape train using only rectangles, squares, triangles and circles.

What other things can you draw using these shapes? How about a house or a robot?

• ### How many sides do you need to draw each shape?

Hints

Touch the top of the circle. Trace all the way around. Did you make any straight lines?

A circle does not have any straight sides.

Solution

To find the number of sides in a shape, you need to count each straight line.

• There are 3 sides in a triangle.
• There are 4 equal sides in a square.
• There are 4 sides in a rectangle.
• There are 0 sides in a circle.

• ### Practise drawing the shapes.

Hints

A circle is the only shape made with a curved line.

For the triangle, you need to highlight three sides.

A square and a rectangle both have four, straight sides, but all of the sides are the same length on a square.

Solution
• To draw the circle, highlight one curved side.
• To draw the square, highlight four straight sides that are all the same length.
• To draw the triangle, highlight three straight sides.
• To draw the rectangle, highlight four straight sides, two shorter and two longer.
• ### Which shape is being drawn?

Hints

Which shape has a side that leans?

Which shape has four equal sides?
