This pack includes printables for teaching about 2D shapes. These task cards are 4 to a page and range from easy to challenging.

This pack has 44 different task cards for students to use in creating composite shapes with pattern blocks. The task cards are in black in white, but I colored mine in by hand.

Some of the composite task cards included are:








-bumble bee






-skate boarder



This pack also includes a picture mat for students to place their pattern blocks on- the mat is in color and in black and white. Students get SO engaged using these task cards.This activity can be used small group, whole group or as a math center.

Please note that these are task cards which means they are not big enough for students to lay the actual blocks on top of them to build the composite shapes. This is an AMAZING way to get students to practice visualizing and conceptualizing in their heads!

I print the cards on cardstock and laminate for some common core aligned, hands-on learning!! I also laminated the picture mats so students could use dry erase markers to write the number of shapes they used!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
