Common Core Standards:
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Distinguish 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.
Recognize 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.
This Common Core aligned activity is the perfect extension to any Geometry lesson for lower elementary students! It asks students to go on a "hide and seek" around the classroom and look for shapes, matching their attributes to ones on a graph where they will jot their findings.
