If your child needs more support in a different format, check out the suggested first grade geometry worksheets.
Prisms, cubes, cones...oh my! Your students have 2-D shapes down, but how are they coming along in their mastery of 3-D shapes? Use this colorful activity to assess your first graders’ abilities to recognize and differentiate between 3-D shapes.
Can your first graders tell the difference between a square and a cube? How about a triangle and a cone? Use this geometry assessment to gauge your students’ abilities to use attributes to sort 2-D and 3-D shapes.
If shapes are starting to fall flat for your students, maybe it's time to introduce 3-D shapes! These worksheets help students learn to identify cubes, spheres, cones, cylinders, and more. With opportunities to color and play interactive games, first graders will have fun learning about 3-D shapes. For more advanced geometry lessons, visit our 3-D shape resources for second graders.
