This unit has 12 days worth of teaching, practicing, creating, working with, writing about, and identifying real world two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures! This unit is geared to 1st & 2nd grade ... check out the standards below.
Each Day has class-wide engagement, higher-order questioning, a cooperative learning opportunity, and a practice for the given lesson! Each day scaffolds on the last, making understanding easier on the students.
This is noooooo prep. Everything you need is here. All you do is print, cut (when needed), teach, and watch your kids soar!
Concept Taught Each Day:
Day 1 - Pre Assessment & Introduction to Figures/Shapes
Day 2 - What are Shapes and Figures? – Open and Closed
Day 3 - Identifying Parts of Figures and Attributes
Day 4 - Creating 2D Figures with Attributes
Day 5 - Composing New Shapes with Given Figures
Day 6 - Real World 2D Shapes
Day 7 - Attributes of Real-World 2D Shapes & Attribute Game
Day 8 - Polygons & Non-Polygons (2D)
Day 9 - Creating 3D Shapes & Attributes
Day 10 - 2D & 3D Real World Figures/Shapes
Day 11 - Review (8 Different Activities to Rotate through... GREAT WORKSTATIONS!)
Day 12 - Post Assessment
Each of day you will explore the world of geometry to deepen students' understanding and mastery of concepts.
There are anchor charts, assessments (pre and post), "I Can ..." statements, practice pages, interactive notebook activities, class-wide collaborative learning for the class, group practice, review activities, and journaling opportunities.
Each lesson has an Activation of Engagement, Questioning, Student Practice, and Closure.
This set is easily differentiated to accommodate each and every learner you teach!
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.1Distinguish 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.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.2Compose 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.1
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.1Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
