Imagine a shape that’s super cool because all of its sides are equal. Yup, you got it right. It’s a Square!
A square is a magical shape that originated from the Latin word ‘exquadrare’, which means ‘to square’.
It’s not just a shape; it’s a special kind of rectangle where every side has the same length.
Making a square is super easy. You just need four lines of the same length and four corners that are right angles (which is just a fancy way of saying they are sharp like the corners of a piece of paper).
We see squares all around us, in the tiles on the floor, windows of a house or even in the slices of your favorite cheese!
Squares are also really important in math. They help us understand how things fit together and how to measure areas of different shapes.
If we divide a square diagonally from one corner to another, it even creates two triangles with equal sides.
So you see, squares aren’t boring – they’re actually super interesting and very helpful, both in real life and in maths.
Remember, it’s four sides, four corners, and loads of fun. That’s what a square is all about!
