These clip cards are a great way to test students’ recognition of basic 2D and 3D shapes. The given possible answers have been carefully chosen to allow teachers to spot any misconceptions students may have about the names and spellings of shapes.
The idea of this activity is that students clip a clothespin, peg or a paperclip to what they think the correct name or spelling of the shape is. This activity works equally well when the cards are laminated. Students simply circle the correct answer using a dry erase marker. Alternatively, you can print these on paper, hand out to your class at the end of the lesson, so they can put their names on and circle the correct answer, serving as a great nishing activity to a lesson.
These cards are in colour, but print equally well in grey scale for cost savings. We have included two versions of this activity, one with shapes lled in (and in the case of the 3D shapes, designed as a solid shape) and a second with just the shapes outline, for if you are worried about ink usage (and for the 3D shapes, these are wireframes).
A great tool for multiple choice in the classroom without needing a computer.
