They will color in the matching shape on their recoding sheet. There is an answer key included so you can easily check students’ answers without moving around the room too! ;)
→ Dab a Shape Print and copy the shape papers. Using a dabber, students will find and dab all of the shapes. Each shape they are looking for is given at the top of the page. No dabber? Have students color in the shapes!
→ Build a Shape Included are some 3D shape task cards for students to create. Each card tells students about the materials they will need.
Materials needed are: Play-Doh, scissors, glue, paper, and popsicle sticks.
You can put all of the materials and the task cards in a bin and let students create the shapes. I’m always so impressed with students’ creativity and what they make!
Most of the activities are pretty low prep! There is a more thorough description of use above and included in the download.
