Shapes is where geometry starts. Children learn to recognize and draw basic shapes, and identify triangles, rectangles, squares, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. They also put together several shapes to form new ones, or divide an existing shape into new ones.
We also study some geometric patterns, have surprises with pentagons and hexagons, and make shapes in
a tangram-like game. These topics are to provide some fun while also letting children explore geometry and helping them to memorize the terminology for basic shapes.
Lastly we touch on solids, such as cube, rectangular prism, pyramids, cone, and cylinder, and study their faces, edges, and vertices. You can make paper models for them from the printouts provided in the file.
You can print the whole unit and make it into a workbook to fully teach these topics. Great for supplementing or replacing your math curriculum.
Answer key is included.
I wish you success in your math teaching!
