Great way to get children working with 2-D shapes and using their names!
Give students some pattern blocks, and let them design something! Then, they will need to write a recipe for it. Encourage them to use their shape names and explanation words to tell what you need and how to make your design. An example is below:
I am making: a Star!
Put a hexagon in the middle. Place a triangle on each flat side of the hexagon to create a square!
