This set is based on the common core and has variations between grade levels and individual student ability to fit your classroom perfectly!
This set includes:
Six interactive activities that can be used as centers or whole group fun.
Polygon Puzzles (Levels 1 & 2)
Drawing Polygons (instructional posters included)
Shape Sort or Triangle Sort (Sort mats and recording sheets included)
Polygon Hunt or Angle Hunt (recording sheets included)
Geometry Memory (Levels 1, 2, & 3)
String Shapes (recording sheet included)
*Kid-friendly signs are included for each center with instructions on what to do.
Flashcards (three sets to match your core exactly)
Riddles (Levels 1 &2)
"Henry the Hexagon" is an original story that will help students become interested in polygons and their attributes. Students will create their own shapes while you read the story aloud to them (toothpicks, straws, or another straight manipulative is needed, six per student). Then the class can create their own book about Henry the Hexagon using the storybook pages that are included. Integrate literacy and art into your geometry unit!)
Shape Posters that can be hung on the wall or used in a lesson on categorizing shapes.
*Color and Black/White
Specifically, this set relates to these standards in the common core:
2.G.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
3.G.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
4.G.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
4.G.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
