## McGraw-Hill My Math Kindergarten Answer Key Chapter 11 Lesson 1 Squares and Rectangles

**Explore and Explain**

**Teacher Directions:** Use to make a picture. Trace the shapes. Identify the shapes by colouring the squares blue and rectangles orange. Describe the shapes using the words longer sides and same length sides. How many sides? How many vertices?

Answer:

The number of sides in a square = 4

The number of sides in a rectangle = 4

The number of vertices in a square = 4

The number of vertices in a rectangle = 4

* All sides are equal in a square

* Opposite sides are equal in a rectangle.

Question 1.

square

Answer:

The name of the above-given shape is a square.

It has 4 sides and 4 vertices.

The blue shade represents a side and the black colour represents the vertices.

Question 2.

rectangle

Answer:

The name of the above-given shape is a rectangle.

It has 4 sides and 4 vertices.

The green shade represents a side and the black colour represents the vertices.

Question 3.

Answer:

The circled shapes are squares.

The coloured ones are rectangles.

square: A square is closed, two-dimensional shape with 4 equal sides and angles.

Rectangle: A Rectangle is a four sided-polygon, having all the internal angles equal to 90 degrees. The two sides at each corner or vertex, meet at right angles. The opposite sides of the rectangle are equal in length which makes it different from a square.

Question 4.

Answer:

The name of the shape is a rectangle.

The circled examples are monitor, oven, and welcome board.

Rectangle: A Rectangle is a four sided-polygon, having all the internal angles equal to 90 degrees. The two sides at each corner or vertex, meet at right angles. The opposite sides of the rectangle are equal in length which makes it different from a square.

**Directions: 1-2.** Name the shape. Trace the number of sides and vertices. **3.** Name the shape. Describe it. Compare the shape to each shape in the group. Circle the matching shapes.** 4.** Name the shape. Describe it. Compare the shape to each object in the group. Circle the objects hot are the same shape.
