What are Shapes?
In geometry, a shape can be defined as the form of an object or its outline, outer boundary or outer surface.
Everything we see in the world around us has a shape. We can find different basic shapes such as the two-dimensional square, rectangle, and oval or the three-dimensional rectangular prism, cylinder, and sphere in the objects we see around us. These geometric shapes appear in objects we see all around us such as credit cards, bills and coins, rings, photo frames, dart boards, houses, windows, tall buildings, flower pots, toy trains, and balloons.
