## Geometric shapes names and pictures with Definitions

**Ellipse**

In an easy way, we can describe the ellipse as “It is a circle that is stretched to make an oval shape. But remember that every oval is not an ellipse.”

**Cube**

It is a solid or hollow three-dimensional shape contained in six squares.

**Cylinder**

It is a geometric figure with a circular cross-section and straight parallel sides.

**Star**

This geometrical shape is due to the idea of stars that shine in the sky. You can make 5 or 6 corner stars.

**Heptagon**

A geometrical plane figure with seven straight sides and angles is known as a heptagon.

**Hexagon**

A geometrical plane figure that has six straight sides and angles is known as a hexagon.

**Crescent**

It is a moon-like curve shape. It looks like a waning moon.

**Pyramid**

It is a mountain-like geometrical shape in which all the sloping sides meet at the same point at the top.

**Right triangle**

A triangular shape having one angle of 90 degrees is known as a triangle.

**Parallelogram**

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel (and therefore opposite angles equal).

**Rhombus**

It is a four equal sides parallelogram having equal opposite acute and obtuse angles.

**Rectangle**

A Plane geometrical shape having opposite sides of the same length and all the angles are 90 degrees is known as a rectangle.

**Octagon**

A plane geometrical figure that has 8 sides is known as an octagon.

**Triangle**

A plane geometrical figure that has three sides and three angles.

**Arrow**

This shape is used to show position, direction, or location.

**Square**

A geometrical plane shape that has all four sides the same and at the same angles.

**Pentagon**

A plane shape that has five sides is known as the pentagon.

**Trapezoid**

A quadrilateral with only two parallel sides. The length of the two opposite sides is the same and the other two are of different lengths.

**Circle**

It is a plane shape that has all the boundary points at an equal distance from a single fixed point at the center.

**Oval**

It is the stretched circle to one side.

**Decagon**

A plane geometrical shape having 10 sides is known as a decagon.

**Heart**

It is the shape that is used to represent the plane shape of the human heart.
