Shapes Craft - a shape bug activity. Cut out the provided shapes and then arrange them to make an insect! This is a fun way to get a hands-on feel for the different shapes. In cutting them out and manipulating the shapes, your students will feel the smooth edge of a circle, and the sharp corners of rectangles and triangles. You can even introduce symmetry with this fun craft!
This is the shape bug craftivity included in my Geometry for 1st Grade Unit
. If you are just looking for the craftivity, this is the resource for you!

Two Pages with shapes to cut out (one with shapes not touching, for beginning cutters, and another for more advanced cutters where shapes share a common edge. Can also be used if you have volunteers available to help cut the shapes out). I recommend copying these on a variety of colored paper.
