Being able to identify and draw basic shapes is essential for elementary students. Many times, students can just follow along with the teacher, but sometimes students need to work on their own or prefer to use how-to-draw books.
This 22 page printable booklet shows step-by-step visual instruction on how to draw basic shapes and forms. The flat shape section includes 7 pages of easy to follow directions to draw a circle, oval, triangle, square, and rectangle. It is necessary for students to be able to draw these basic shapes well before moving on to three-dimensional forms. The 3-D form portion has 12 pages of instruction on how to draw cylinders, pyramids, and cubes.
These instructions can be used as part of a lesson plan on shapes and forms, set aside for early-finishers, or have on hand for students who need quick instruction on how to draw 3-D shapes to include in their drawings.
