Product Description
Most of my Y5s don’t have any problem learning to identify the 2D shapes, however, when I ask them to find an example of that shape in the “real world” many of them have difficulty.

They seem to think that if the shape is a different size, or viewed at a different angle that it’s not a hexagon. I even had one child think hexagons were only yellow because of our pattern blocks!

With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun “I Spy Hexagons!” Puzzle Pie activity.
It’s especially helpful, as the hexagon seems to be our “toughie” shape. I think it’s because they aren’t that common.

Use the full color patterns as an independent center.

I’ve included 2, “bottom” puzzle grids with matching words, as well as a blank template, so that students can pick and choose, which of the 12-different pieces of “real world” hexagon examples, they want to use to complete the picture puzzle.

I’ve also included black & white templates, so that students can make their own puzzles to take home.

I’ve also included a volleyball photo-poster for some fun reinforcement.

This is one in a series of 14, 2D-puzzle pie packets, which will feature all of the 2D shapes.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students will really enjoy these “Shapely Puzzle Pies.”
