Explain to the children that this week at the art table they will create with shapes. Hold up the caterpillar and ask, "If I wanted to make this caterpillar what shapes would I use?" Answer: Six circles.
Tell them that you have added shape pictures to the table to give them some ideas of some of the things they could make, but they don't have to make them, they can create anything they want.
This unit provides you with 11 shape pictures and 8 pages of shapes in different sizes. All you need to do is print the shape pictures and shape pages, and add scissors, paste, and crayons. This can also be used as a Math Center idea.
