Our Defining Shapes lesson plan introduces students to various strategies that can be used to define shapes. Shapes are defined by counting the number of sides and corners. A chart is provided which includes an illustration, number of sides, and number of corners for several different shapes. During this lesson, students are asked to cut out and color in various shapes and then use their creativity to create a picture with the shapes. Students are also asked to label shapes, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes as well as recognizing and drawing shapes with specific attributes.
