Today we are going to learn about the different types of triangles.
Hi, I am Mr Triangle. I have 3 sides and 3 angles.
Did you know that there are 3 types of triangle?
Isosceles: I have 2 sides of equal length and one side that is different. I have 2 equal angles. You can find me in objects like:
An ice cream cone, the Eiffel Tower in France or a slice of Pizza!
Equilateral: I have 3 sides of equal length and my 3 angles are the same, 60 degrees!
I can be a road sign, a pool ball rack or a Dorito!
Right angled: One of my angles is always 90 degrees.
You can find me in sandwiches, a triangular ruler or a ramp!
Look around you and try to find other examples!
Triangles are everywhere can you work out which type of triangle I am?
