Here's a super-fun
way to review 2D shapes
. If your students are like mine, they'll beg to do more than one!
You can make these anytime, but they're especially appropriate for Earth Day
, as your students are seeing first hand how to reuse old magazines
them into a work of art.
I've included patterns for a circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, trapezoid, rhombus, heart, star and crescent
Run off whatever 2D shapes
you're working on, then give your students a choice
They choose however many strips they need to fill in that shape, glue them on, then flip their paper over and trim.
Completed projects turn out absolutely awesome and make a great bulletin board
Display as is, or mount on a variety of bright colors of construction paper.
I've also included a pattern for "prize ribbons"
in all of the shapes listed above.
Have students pick the one that matches their collage, then write their name, the shape name and a title of their shapely piece on the "ribbon tag". Hang these along side children's "masterpieces".
I've included a "Shape Up!" poster
for the center of your display.
Check out the photographs in the preview, of 2 other versions
you can make with the shape templates.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing shapes while creating a lovely piece of art.
