Lines, Shapes and Solid

**Category : **1st Class

**LEARNING OBJECTIVES**

This lesson will help you to:-

- understand the basic concept of lines and shapes.
- understand straight and curved lines.
- study various flat shapes and solid shapes.
- understand the way shapes affect movement like rolling and sliding.

**QUICK CONCEPT REVIEW**

LINE: ____________________________________

A line is a long thin mark made by a pen, pencil, chalk etc.

**TYPE OF LINES**

Lines are of two types:

Straight lines

**Curved lines**

Everything around us is made of curved lines or straight lines or a combination of both lines.

**SHAPES AND SOLIDS**

All things around us have shapes. There are 2 types of shapes:-

Flat Shape

Solid Shape

Real Life Examples

*Line and shapes are useful in architecture and carpentry.*

*We see different shapes all around us.*

*Eg: football, book, pencil *

Square, circle, triangle and rectangle are flat shapes. Sphere, cone, cylinder, cube and cuboid are solid shapes.

**FLAT SHAPES**

**SOLID SHAPES **

**FLAT SHAPES **

Squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, and lines can be drawn on a piece of paper.

Most of them have sides and corners but circle has neither side nor corner.

**1. SQUARE**

Square has four sides and four corners.

E.g. Chess board.

**2. RECTANGLE**

A **rectangle** has four sides and four corners.

The longer side is called **length**.

The shorter side is called **breadth**.

E.g. Door.

**3. TRIANGLE**

A triangle has three sides and three corners.

E.g. A pizza slice.

**4. CIRCLE:**

A circle is round and has no side.

E.g. A circular plate.

**5. OVAL **

An oval has no sides.

E.g. An egg.

We will study about solid shapes in the next class.

**ROLLING AND SLIDING**

Have you noticed that some objects roll while some slide?

When we push round objects like ball, etc., they roll. When we push flat objects like book, dice etc., they slide. Do you know the reason?

This is because a ball has a curved or round surface that is why a ball rolls.

A dice has flat surface that is why a dice slides.

Observe different objects at your home or school and try to identify their shapes. Discuss your observations with your family, friends and teachers.

*Amazing Facts*

*Have you seen any pyramid?*

*A pyramid is a structure which has triangular face. These triangular faces merge to a point at the top.*

*The base of pyramid can be rectangle, square etc.*
