# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, 2D shapes

## Maths Resource Description

The Max Maths Workbook for Year 2 introduces young learners to the world of 2D shapes with engaging and interactive activities. In Practice 1, the task is straightforward: students are asked to match various shapes to their correct names, such as squares, triangles, circles, and rectangles. This exercise helps to reinforce their recognition and understanding of basic geometric shapes. Additionally, students are encouraged to bring these shapes to life with colour by painting triangles blue, rectangles red, circles green, and squares yellow, further enhancing their ability to identify and differentiate between these shapes.

Moving forward, the workbook presents a series of drawing exercises where students apply their knowledge of shapes and dimensions. For instance, they are guided to draw rectangles of specific sizes, such as one that is 4 squares wide and 2 squares long, and squares with given side lengths, like a square that spans 3 squares on each side. These tasks not only solidify their comprehension of shapes but also introduce basic concepts of measurement and proportion. In a creative twist, students are also asked to find objects with a circular shape, such as a soft-drink can, and use them to trace circles onto their workbooks, thereby connecting everyday objects to geometric concepts. This hands-on approach makes learning about 2D shapes both fun and memorable for Year 2 students.
