Geometry

K.G Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).

2. Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

3. Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”). Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.

4. 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).

5. Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

Higher-Order Thinking Component of This Lesson:

There were some shapes, intentionally, included on the task cards that students will not be able to build (cone, circle, oval) with marshmallows and pretzel sticks/toothpicks. Students should discover this problem on the own, and explain the reasons for this problem (Theses shapes have no sides.)
