Geometry Shapes 2

Geometry Shapes 2 introduces students to many different shapes and their attributes. Students will learn how to identify these shapes and draw them based on what they know about the shapes’ attributes. They will also learn to classify shapes into categories and put shapes together to make new images.

There are several suggestions listed in the “Options for Lesson” section that you could use in your lesson. One suggestion is to divide students into groups and assign them a shape to present. Another option is to break cookies in half and quarters. You could also have students cut paper into shapes and create composite shapes.

What our Geometry Shapes 2 lesson plan includes

Lesson Objectives and Overview: Geometry Shapes 2 teaches students about defining and non-defining attributes of many shapes. Students will learn how to identify and draw shapes based on these traits. They will also learn how to divide shapes into even portions. By the end of the lesson, they will also be able to create composite shapes.

Three content pages describe the shapes that students will learn about in the lesson. Students will see how shapes can be put together to make new things. For example, a circle on a cone looks like an ice cream cone. A triangle on a square looks like a house. The worksheets will provide students many opportunities to demonstrate their grasp of the concepts.

DRAW A PICTURE ACTIVITY

This lesson’s activity worksheet will put students to the test. They will have to draw a picture of something they like to do. However, they can only use the list of shapes that the instructions present. There are 10 shapes that they can work with. They won’t be allowed to use lines, for instance. Although this activity may be a challenge, students will enjoy seeing how everything they see is really a series of shapes put together.

GEOMETRIC SHAPES 2 PRACTICE WORKSHEET

The practice worksheet requires students to analyze several different shapes. For the first part, they will write how many sides and angles three shapes have. Then they will look at eight shapes and circle the ones that are quadrilaterals. Finally, they will draw lines to divide a pair of shapes in half and then another pair of shapes in quarters.

GEOMETRY WALK HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT

For the homework assignment, students must go on a “Geometry Walk.” First they will identify six shapes and write the names of the shapes in the column next to it. Then they will walk around their neighborhood and find examples of the shapes. In the third column, they will write where they found the shape. For example, they may find a triangle in the shape of a rooftop.

REVIEW OF SHAPES QUIZ

The quiz requires students answer several different questions. They will color specific shapes, write the sides and angles of other shapes, and then break composite shapes into smaller ones.
