### Lines are everywhere!

Without **parallel** and **perpendicular** lines, we wouldn't have the shapes that make up everyday life.

### But what exactly is the difference between perpendicular and parallel lines?

👉 Time to find out!

## Parallel Lines

These are lines that **never touch** and are **equidistant** from each other.

They can be **straight** or **curved**.

### Straight parallel lines

### Curved parallel lines

## ⭐ Spot the parallel lines

Look at these real life examples:

**Zebra crossing**

**Pencils**

#### Quiz

Which picture is an example of parallel lines?

## Perpendicular Lines

These are lines that **cross** over with each other at **right angles**.

The two lines **intersect** each other at a **right angle** (or 90°).

## ⭐ Spot the perpendicular lines

Look at these objects:

**A cross**

**Triangular window**

#### Quiz

Which picture is an example of perpendicular lines?
