 Square Facts for Kids Check out our square facts for kids and learn some interesting information about this regular quadrilateral. Find out how to find the area and perimeter of a square, how many lines of symmetry square has, what the internal angles of a square add to and much more. Read on and enjoy our square facts and trivia before taking a look at all our other interesting information devoted to the wonderful world of geometry.

 A square is a polygon with 4 sides of equal length and 4 right angle corners (90 degree corners). Because it has 4 sides of equal length, a square is a regular quadrilateral. A square is also a rectangle with equal sides and a rhombus with right angles. The area of a square is equal to the length of one side to the power of two (length squared). The perimeter of a square is 4 times the length of one side. A square has a larger area than all other quadrilaterals with the same perimeter. The diagonals of a square bisect each other at 90 degrees and are perpendicular. Opposite sides of a square are parallel. The internal angles of a square add to 360 degrees. A square has 4 lines of reflectional symmetry. Square shapes are often used by humans for design and engineering purposes such as town planning. A cube features six square faces and in many ways is like a square, only in three dimensions rather than two. Now that you're an expert on squares, try learning about triangles and other 2D polygon shapes.
