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, particularly with hexagons.

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!” shape wheel craftivity. 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 4, OUTSIDE pattern options, as well as 2 INSIDE wheel options, featuring 12, different images of hexagon-shaped things children will easily recognize.

I’ve also included black & white templates, so that students can make their own “turn & learn” wheel to take home, further practicing this standard.

The volleyball photo-poster will also help reinforce the hexagon shape.

This is part of a series of 8, 2D-shape wheels.

Each 2D shape “wheel packet” is sold separately for just $2.25.

Shapes include: circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon & octagon.
