Introduction

Perhaps you are a student needing to study for a geometric shapes test. Perhaps you are a prospective teacher wishing to study for a Praxis test or other teacher preparation test. These 54 flashcards plus slideshow and video can really help you study.

Flashcard directions

The flashcards are set up so that you can print all 9 pages. There are six shapes per page. Simply fold the correlating cards so that the shape and a blank box are on one side. On the other side is the identical shape plus the name of the shape. Pertinent details that will help you identify this same shape in the future are also included on this second side.

If you print the flashcards on cardstock, you should not be able to see the answer through the paper. If you are a teacher, you might even want to laminate the cards and place them in a learning center for your students.

Please note: All these 54 shapes were created using PowerPoint.

Here are 54 geometric shapes flashcards to download and print.
