SHAPE CITY 2D Shape Build and Count or ARRAYS

A craft to reinforce the concept of 2D shapes OR creating and describing ARRAYS as an bridge to multiplication skills.

Integrate math and art to reinforce concepts in a new way!

Practice and solidify core math concepts in a fun and engaging way with this adorable math craft! My students LOVE learning math through art, and my classroom is always bright and colorful as we display our results.

  • This simple project integrates math and art together to create a city scape picture made of buildings with rows of windows and other features. There are templates for students to color and glue, or you can copy the shape templates onto colored paper for students to cut out and assemble their buildings and windows.

  • All the templates are included, so all you have to do is print them out for each student.

  • Each city will be unique! Once complete, students use a recording strip to count the number of each shape they used. If you are working on arrays, there is a separate recording strip for recording how many rows of windows in each building.

  • The coloring, cutting, gluing and problem solving makes it a perfect hands-on activity.

  • This math craft makes an adorable classroom or hallway display!

  • An extra color version is included to laminate and use in a math center. Students choose the shapes to build their city, then use dry erase markers to count their shapes or arrays.
