This is a 2D and 3D shape identification activity.
Directions for use:
Print and laminate the dinosaur cards. Children may play alone or with a partner. Give the children magnifying glasses to search for the 2D and 3D shapes hidden in the pictures. For a more authentic paleontologist experience, give the children gloves to wear. After the children have found the shapes, have them color the shape in on the recording sheet. If playing with a partner, have each child tell their partner the name of the shape they found and point to it on their recording sheet. The partner can “verify” their partner’s work before the shape is colored.
The following shapes are included in each picture:
