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
, 2D-shape wheels.
Each 2D shape “wheel packet” is sold separately for just $1.95.
Shapes include: circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon & octagon.
