In this post we are going to check out the different kinds of exercises that we have here at Smartick to learn how to identify a cylinder.

Before we go on, I invite you to review a prior post that explains what exactly is a cylinder: Cylinders

**In this post, you’ll remember that cylinders are geometric shapes that are formed by a rectangle that turns on one of its sides.**

### 1.Identifying the geometric shape in a given image

The student must identify the geometric shape they see and select the correct answer of the options that are given.

### 2. Comparing a cylinder with the shapes of real life objects

The student must identify which real life objects presented is the same as a cylinder. As a visual aid, an image of a cylinder is shown as well.

### 3. Identifying the name of the geometric shape that looks like the real life object

The student is given an image of an every-day, real life object and they must choose which shape the object is from the options given.

### 4. Identifying the geometric shape that is the same shape as a real life object

The student needs to choose the geometric shape that has the same shape as the real life object from the options provided.

### 5. Comparing real life objects

From three real life objects, the student must determine which one has a geometric shape most similar to the original shape shown.

### 6. Identifying the objects that have a cylinder shape

In this type of exercises, the student is asked to identify the objects that have a cylinder shape without the help of a visual aid.

### 7. Distinguishing a given geometric shape

Of a series of geometric shapes, the student needs to identify which ones can be considered the indicated shape.
