Matching is the identification of the same or similar objects according to their common properties. Matching activities could help kids to refine their powers of observation, thinking, and problem solving. It also lays a solid foundation for mathematical learning. Matching by shapes is one of the necessary matching skills that kids should master.
This worksheet provides an exercise for learning different variations of triangles and practicing matching by shapes. It may attract kids around three years old. It contains six triangles with varying forms according to their sides or angles. They are equilateral, isosceles, scalene, right angled, obtuse angled, and acute angled. Parents could cut out the six triangles, mix them, and ask kids to match the triangles to the corresponding outlines.
This exercise is not difficult because the triangles clearly differ from each other. It could train kids to discover similarity between objects, as well as distinguish differences between similar objects. This exercise is also good for developing kids fine motor skills.
