With a hands on technique, learners identify congruent shapes during this lesson. Both in groups, and individually, they discuss whether the shapes used in the examples are congruent. Then they head to the computers and go to a website that has a game involving congruent figures.
Students combine geometric shapes. In this geometric shapes instructional activity, students review basic 2-D shapes and discover how to combine shapes to construct a tangram. Students explore tessellations.
In this geometric shape perspective worksheet, students look at three images of blocks, then decide if the next image is the top view, the front view or could be either view.
In this geometric shapes worksheet, students complete 7 pages pertaining to colors and shapes. Students are dictated (or read by themselves) the directions to point to, trace or color the shapes. Included are: circles, triangles, ovals, squares, rectangles and pentagons.
Students study shapes and shape names. In this geometric shapes lesson plan, students practice identifying shapes. Students then create a necklace using the shapes they have learned. 
Students find real-world examples of a variety of geometric shapes. They conduct research, record observations, and write descriptions. They create a classroom cityscape and highlight the information they gathered. They present an oral presentation and drawing.
Elementary school learners explore the concept of geometric shapes, focusing on the circle, triangle, square, and rectangle. They look at photographs to find "hidden shapes." The youngsters discuss all the shapes that can be found all around us, everyday.
Students explore geometry by utilizing computer software. In this shape identification instructional activity, students define several geometric shapes by the characteristics that classify them. Students draw and cut out geometric shapes using their characteristics as guidelines before completing a computer geometry activity.
Build on your learners' previous knowledge of geometric shapes and symmetrical figures. Then set them out to take photos of geometric shapes on campus. They assess whether the photos contain symmetry or not. 
In this shapes worksheet, students trace the lines and notice the geometric shapes in a house outline. Students then cut out the geometric shapes on the second page and paste them into a picture of their own. Students answer 8 questions about the shapes they see.
Second graders look at primary source pictures to identify geometric shapes. In this geometric shapes instructional activity, 2nd graders look at pictures and identify two dimensional shapes that they see in them. They make an "I Spy Math" slideshow.
Learners play a game with shapes. They work in groups to identify the names and characteristics of various shapes. They give each other clues to see if others can identify the shape being described. This is a great hands on activity.
Young scholars explore different geometric shapes. In this geometry lesson, students find and photograph shapes in their surroundings. They make a poster board to display and analyze their different shapes.
Students identify geometric patterns in quilts. In this geometry lesson, students view various types of quilts and identify the geometric shapes. Students construct one hundred patch paper quilts using geometric shapes.
Students examine geometric quilt patterns to identify how math may have been used to help slaves escape to freedom. They slide, flip and turn geometric shapes to create a map quilt.
Learners investigate geometric shapes and patterns.  In this geometry lesson, students explore and analyze primary source images, mostly buildings and building interiors,  to identify geometry shapes, patterns, and concepts. 
Invite your first graders to compose and decompose two and three-dimensional figures with this fun, hands-on lesson. They investigate and predict the results of putting together and taking apart two-dimensional shapes with rubber bands and Geoboards. Through this engaging activity, they will begin to understand and identify the simple fraction of one half as they place two triangles together to make one square. To further their understanding of the basic figures within two-dimensional shapes, learners create shapes using Wikki Stixs. To complete the lesson, the class creates three-dimensional figures such as a cube with marshmallows and toothpicks. Included are extension and family connection activities. Please note that modeling and support will be needed for your youngsters to independently create shapes using hands-on materials as indicated in the lesson.
Students record examples of various shapes in their class and school. They create a list of two and three dimensional shapes found in their environment. They research information about each shape and write a storyboard for a picture slideshow. They edit and author a slideshow presentation about the shapes they selected.
Young scholars identify the differences among visual characteristics of art in order to convey ideas. They describe the different features of art and create an original piece of art using geometric shapes.
Learners play a game involving geometric shapes in this resource. As a review of geometric figures, including rectangles, quadrilaterals, triangles, etc., this activity could be used as part of unit on this topic.
