Login to SL and begin your scavenger hunt for images that represent each term. 
Once you have found the image, take a snapshot and save as in this example: 
Open up the file in an editing software and crop as desired.  Outline the term, save as in this example:
Combine both images into one, showing "before" and "after" and save as in this example:

This was the easiest shape to find, since lines were everywhere


Square    This wall was in my first stop in SL.  Only issue I had was having to "socialize" with someone - I wanted to say "I'm in a hurry! I'm doing my homework" - but I just couldn't be rude...
Triangle   I tried flying to see if there were lots of geometric shapes.  The triangle was easy to find in roof structures.
Circle   Circles were quick - you can see I started at UTB island.  Again, the flying and looking down perspective helped. 
Rhombus    My dictionary said rhombus and diamond were the same thing, so I'm using this twice.  Even so, I had to use a trick of perspective to get something resembling a diamond. 
Parallelogram  Since parallelogram is a term for several shapes included here, it was easy to find one to fill this category. 
Trapezoid    Again, I was "socializing" - trying (in vain) to explain why I was looking for shapes - when I spotted this in a fountain.   To speed things up, I teleported somewhere else. 
Diamond   See rhombus above. 
Octagon    I lucked out with this one -  
Hexagon    I had to "search" and then teleport to a place featuring the term "hexagon gazebo" - then up and "click" 
Pentagon    Same strategy - a bit of a cheat, I guess - using "search" -  this was a "pentagon-based pillar" for sale. 
Rectangle    I found the rectangle in the first 5 minutes.
