Many of the pages in this pack refer to one of the quadrilaterals as a ‘trapezium’. However, some countries use the word ‘trapezoid’ instead, so alternative versions of these resources are also included for our members.

Very good resource. I would like to see something for the older grades on this topic.
I am so happy that I bought a membership to this website! It has saved me hours and hours of finding materials. This pack gave me everything I needed for our Shapes math unit!!!! Thank you!
I love the posters in this pack. They are clear and well laid out. Not overly complicated. I would love maybe some tessellation puzzles/pictures too - I think that would really add to the pack! Thanks Teaching Packs for another great pack!
I use this every year with my year 2 class. They love the fact that the shapes are made into different animals and this helps them remember and recall the names. These are always found on my maths working wall during our shape focused week.
This pack was a godsend to me when starting in a new job days before Ofsted arrived. The colourful display posters meant I could make my tutoring room look bright and cheerful in minutes.
The animal shapes on the cards intrigued my children and helped my SEN children to remember some shapes more easily.
I recommend this pack to everyone!
Thank you once again for a jam packed resource:) This pack will be used with great appreciation for my next Learning Wall visual display in year 6 in the new year.
Downloading this pack for the second time as I have lost my original. Used the animal safari pack for year 6 children, who they then went on to make super hero shapes characters. We also went on to make wanted posters e.g wanted strong quadrilateral must have 4 equal sides, 4 right angles. Children loved this and came up with some great ideas.
p.s A super hero pack would be amazing.
What a wonderful resource. My special needs class love this resource, especially the animals. They discuss the shapes in conversations with each other "remember that triangle was a ........" Given that these children are mostly ASD students this conversation is extremely beneficial to them. Thank you so much!
A very visual pack for display with a wide range of activities for active learning. Would love to see something similar for 3D shapes.
I have found every pack I have downloaded has exactly what I need...this pack is no different. The shape mats are perfect with the characters that make it fun for the children!
