12 Lesson Plans are directly aligned with ALL Common Core Standards for Kindergarten Geometry. Students will explore concepts through literature, music, art, technology, games, and hands-on activities.
-identifying 2D and 3D figures regardless of orientation or size
-describing the relative positions of shapes
-identifying shapes as two-dimensional or three-dimensional
-analyzing and comparing 2D and 3D shapes
-identifying attributes and characteristics of 2D and 3D shapes
-modeling shapes in the world by building shapes from components

Students will explore these concepts through the following:
-listening to five picture books with corresponding activities
-completing 2D Shape Booklets with a magazine hunt
-creating shapes with various materials/medians and food
-completing a Food Shape Chart
-going on shape hunts
