Shapes are one of the first mathematical subjects introduced to kids. At around 18 months old, kids start to notice differences between shapes. At 2 years old, they begin to understand, recognize and name basic shapes such as circle, triangle, square, and rectangle. At 3 years old, kids start to move onto more shapes such as star, heart, oval, and diamond. Once they have a good understanding of these shapes, it is time for them to learn pentagons, hexagons, and octagons. A hexagon is a polygon with 6 straight sides and 6 corners.
This worksheet is all about hexagon. It helps kids learn about what hexagons are and how to recognize hexagons. A hexagon is a 2D shape that has 6 sides and 6 corners. Hexagons can be any size, and the sides/edges can be the same size or different, as long as all the sides connect to make a closed shape. Hexagons can be any color. Hexagons are present widely in our life, such as patches on a soccer ball, pencils, honeycomb inside beehives, hexagonal shaped windows, hexagonal shapes of nuts and bolts, and snowflakes. A simple exercise is given in the end for kids to recognize hexagons. This could help kids reinforce the concept of the hexagon shape.
