Product Description
12 Lesson Plans are directly aligned with ALL Common Core Standards for 2nd Grade Geometry.

Content includes:
-identifying shapes with specific attributes
-drawing shapes with specific attributes
-partitioning rectangles into rows and columns of equal sections
-counting equal sections to find area of a rectangle
-partitioning circles and rectangles into two, three, and four equal shares

Students will explore the content through the following:
(Identifying and Drawing Shapes with Specific Attributes: Lessons 1-5)
-picture books with corresponding activities
-using 2D/3D shape manipulatives and sorting
-completing a Shape Attribute Chart
-making a shape mobile
-creating shapes based on attributes with popsicle sticks, Play Dough, and shaving cream
-creating 2D shape artwork
-playing "What Shape Am I?" game
-playing "Shape BINGO"

Lessons 11 and 12 include a Performance Review and Assessment that covers ALL standards in the lessons. In the performance review, students will be playing an "I Spy" game to review and will draw and build shapes using paper/pencil and Play Dough. Students will use index cards and Circle-Cut Outs for the partitioning portion of the review.

The assessment includes specific directions and a checklist as you assess each student. Students will use shape manipulatives, index cards, and Circle Cut-Outs for the assessment. The set-up is explained and several links to computer games are included to keep other students reviewing while you pull students aside to assess.

You can view a free lesson from the unit in the preview.
