We’ve been looking at bridges and how they are formed of many other shapes. How many rectangles and triangles can be found on the images in this linked Find the rectangles and triangles document? If you get really into finding shapes in pictures, why not have a look at this Google Map of Le Jardin de Luxembourg in Paris? What shapes can you find in and about this garden? Add your comments to this post and discuss what shapes you think you’ve seen. Can you find other shape filled locations around the world?

    In the Jardin de Luxembourg there is an octagonal pond where I sailed a boat on my holiday last year! There are rectangles, squares, triangles, spheres, arches and semi-circles. Kensington Gardens has a lot of shapes made with paths, so does Hyde Park. The 2012 Olympic Stadium is good. Westminster Cathedral has an octagon and a cross. Brighton Pavilion is also good for circles, ovals, hexagons, cylinders, squares and rectangles. 😉

      Found any irregular shapes like trapeziums anywhere? You can link the Google map in your comment for others to see.

    I found 20 rectangles on the link and on the other one I found 20 regular triangles and 4 irregular ones. Westminster cathedral has octagons and a cross. Le Jardin de Luxembourg has 6 squares, 1 octagon, 10 rectangles and 3 semi circles. 🙂 🙂
