Students will love composing and decomposing two-dimensional shapes using tangram puzzle pieces. Use this plan alone or to frontload key vocabulary and concepts taught in the lesson plan **Know Your Shapes.**
Bring geometry to life for your young ones with this butterfly symmetry activity that doubles as a coloring page! Your students will love learning all about extending patterns and matching shapes as they make their very own symmetrical butterflies!
Out for the day? That's no problem with this classroom packet. With this daily sub plan, you will soon be ready to have a substitute in the classroom. Your substitute teacher can keep your students learning in your absence by using these robust lessons, worksheets, and activities.
It’s the season for falling leaves, fall colors, and corn! Use this easy activity to help your child make some amazing paintings. They can use their math skills to design patterns for cards, paper, presents and more!
This lesson helps students understand the difference between polygons. It focuses on the root words of these terms to help students make connections to their prior knowledge, making it especially beneficial for ESLs.
Your child has been incorporating the study of 2-D shapes into their play time since they were old enough to focus their site on objects. Now you can help them solidify that understanding with exercises and worksheets that clearly instruct a shape’s name and qualities, while still leaving room for games. That detailed knowledge of shapes will be very useful later on when it is time to learn geometry.
They may be flat, but that doesn’t mean learning about 2-D shapes can’t be fun. From rectangles to hexagons, students can learn the many dimensions (both width and height!) of 2-D shapes from a variety of exercises and activities. They may not be thick, but there is plenty to work with. For younger students, resources help identify and draw basic 2-D shapes, such as circles, squares and triangles. As students advance, worksheets help them understand more complicated categories of 2-D shapes such as polygons and parallelograms and their properties. A variety of worksheets and hands-on exercises ensure that there is something that will help you teach the fundamentals of 2-D shapes. You can even introduce the concept of symmetry by having students create a colorful butterfly.
