What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

This activity is not included in Australia – Australian Curriculum.

You can go to an overview of all the curricula here.

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 4.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by two features simultaneously

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 3 programme of study
• KS2.Y3.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y3.G.PS.4 – Identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 3.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

• ##### 4.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 4.G.1 – Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

• 4.G.2 – Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
