# The Magic of Shapes: From 4 Sides to 6!

Discovering Shapes with Multiple Sides

Shapes surround us wherever we go. From the books we read to the buildings we see, shapes play an essential role in our daily lives. Let's delve into the fantastic world of shapes, starting from those with 4 sides and exploring up to those with 6 sides.

H2: Shapes with 4 Sides

When we talk about shapes with 4 sides, the first thing that comes to mind is a square. But did you know there are other 4-sided shapes too? Rectangles, trapezoids, and parallelograms are all part of this family, known as quadrilaterals.

H2: Journeying to Shapes with 5 Sides

From four, we move on to shapes with 5 sides. These are called pentagons. They can be regular, with all sides and angles equal, or irregular with varying sides and angles. They're like the middle child of the shape family, bridging the gap between quadrilaterals and hexagons.

H2: Exploring Shapes with 6 Sides

Now, let's jump to shapes with 6 sides - the hexagons. They can be found in nature, especially in honeycombs made by bees. Just like pentagons, hexagons can be regular or irregular.
