Is it time for a 2D Shape work out? If your students' 2D shape knowledge is a little flat and your 2D Shape unit from last year is a little flabby you need to SHAPE UP and get this adorable little packet to get your geometry learning fit! INCLUDED: Activities that will fit with your 3D shape unit!!!
Anchor Shape UP Charts: Use these anchor charts to introduce each shape, discuss attributes and to refer to them when needed. Laminate and post on a bulletin board. Questions, answers and gestures included.
Meet Your Match!: Use these flash cards to help reinforce 2D shape vocabulary, reinforce word and picture connection and to help connect to objects in the real world. Play a timed matching game.
Sort That 2D Shape!: Use the matching cards from the previous activity to help reinforce attributes of different 2D Shapes by sorting them. Discuss vertices, faces, curved sides, straight sides, angles and right angles.
Compare and Contrast Core Showdown: Compare and contrast 2D shapes to other 2D or 3D Shapes using the provided Venn Diagrams. Choose your own 2D shapes to compare and contrast, as well.
Write it, Body build it, Stretch it out!!: Students will trace each shape, color it, add muscles, draw a picture of it in real life, write it in the lines, write it in block letters and write it stretched out!
Exercise Your Options: Students are given a 2D shape and 2 different piles of sides that could make the shape. Students must look carefully at each option and choose 1 of them by circling it. Then students must count out the correct number of pieces (short and long pipe cleaners) and create the shape to see if they were correct. Then, they must record whether or not they were correct and why.
Train Your Brain: Draw That Shape!: Photocopy the geodot board and laminate or put in a plastic sleeve. Project your own copy and practice drawing different 2D shapes with dry erase markers.
Shape Up! Mystery Shape: Put a bunch of different 2D shapes in a bag. Have students grab one without pulling it out, make a guess as to what shape it is, record whether or not they were correct, and, with help from the 2D Shape Statistics Sheet, record the number or angles, vertices, etc. Students can draw a picture of what it looks like and a picture of where it could be found in real life.
Shape UP! Fitness Test - What 2D Shape?: This final quiz will help to assess your students knowledge.
