### Example Question #1 : Analyze And Compare Two And Three Dimensional Shapes: Ccss.Math.Content.K.G.B.4

What is the difference between the two shapes below?

One shape is two-dimensional and the other shape is three-dimensional.

The number of sides each of the shapes have.

The color of the shapes.

The number of sides each of the shapes have.

Explanation:

The difference between these two shapes are the number of side lengths they each have.

The triangle has three sides and the rectangle has four sides. They are both two-dimensional shapes because they are both flat shapes, and they are both red shapes.

### Example Question #1 : Analyzing, Comparing, Creating, And Composing Shapes

What is the difference between the two shapes below?

Their size

They type of shape

Their color

Their size

Explanation:

Both of these shapes are hexagons because they are both flat shapes with six sides. The only difference is their size. One shape is smaller than the other.
