We know that rectangles have four sides and four corners. Is this a rectangle? Yes, it is. It has four sides and four corners. So, there’s one rectangle.

Are the cat’s legs made from rectangles? No, these are triangles. These shapes only have three sides. Is the cat’s body a rectangle? Yes, it is. It has four sides and four corners. This is our second rectangle. And the cat’s face is a rectangle. It has four sides and four corners. We found three rectangles.

The cat’s eyes are made from circles. Its nose is a triangle. These shapes don’t have four sides; they’re not rectangles either. There are three rectangles in the picture.
