Basic Geometry

"We've Got Some Shapes"



This song covers the names and properties of shapes, including triangles, squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses and trapezoids. The song also reviews acute, obtuse and right angles. It’s a basic geometry rap.



My mom told me to get in shape. So I climbed up into a triangle. My dad said he’s out of shape. He looks a little bit like a rhombus.
Yeah, shapes in the place.

Got some shapes in your face.
We’ve got the shapes in the place.
Let’s say one line is riding along,
Going straight as lines like to do.
He meets up with his friend, Hanzel,
And where they meet they form an angle.
Angles are measured in degrees,
Spin all the way around, that’s 360.
If you take a right turn that’s 90,
So a right angle has 90 degrees.

A right angle, that’s what you get in a square,
You might even find it in a triangle,
If it’s less than 90 degrees, it’s acute,
If it’s more than 90, it’s obtuse,
If it’s less than 90, it’s acute,
If it’s more than 90, it’s obtuse,
If it’s 90, then it’s right,
You know it’s nice, and yeah it’s right.

Oh we’ve got some shapes,
Coming all up in the place.
You know? Yeah I know,
So get ready for the next episode. (x2)


A square is a 4-sided shape,
With 4 right angles and 4 equal sides,
So you can spin it like a top (top),
And when it stops (stops) it’s going to look the same.

A rectangle is a 4-sided shape,
With 4 right angles,
So a square is a kind of rectangle,
But not all rectangles are square, is that clear?

A parallelogram is a 4-sided shape,
With two pairs of parallel sides,
So a square? Yes. A rectangle? Yes.
A rhombus? Yes. Those are all parallelograms.

A rhombus is a 4-sided shape,
Where every side is the same length,
So a square is a kind of rhombus,
So is a diamond, I’ll keep rhyming.

A trapezoid is a 4-sided shape,
With one pair of parallel sides,
So it looks kind of funny sitting there,
A trapezoid is definitely not a square.

Oh we’ve got some shapes,
Coming all up in the place,
You know? Yeah I know,
So get ready for the next episode. (x2)


A triangle is a three sided shape
An angle is the space formed between two lines when they meet. The size of an angle is measured in degrees.
A circle has 360 degrees.
A right angle has 90 degrees.
An acute angle has less than 90 degrees. It is smaller than an obtuse angle.
An obtuse angle has more than 90 degrees. It is larger than an obtuse angle.
A square is a four-sided shape with four right angles and four equal sides.
A rectangle is a four-sided shape with four right angles, with two pairs of parallel sides. The sides don't all have to be equal though. A square is a type of rectangle, but a rectangle doesn't have to be a square.
A parallelogram is a four-sided shape with two pairs of parallel sides.
A rhombus is a four-sided shape where all sides are the same length, but the angles are not the same.
A trapezoid is a four-sided shape with one pair of parallel lines.
What shape has three sides?
A triangle
What shape looks kind of funny sitting there?
A trapezoid
What shape has four equal sides and four right angles?
A square
A square is a type of rhombus and ________.
Parallelogram
What type of angle has less than 90 degrees?
An acute angle
