Students identify shapes that are squares. In this square lesson, students identify the square items and then sing songs about squares.
Here are five activity worksheets about specific shapes. The shapes are: circle, oval, square, rectangle, and triangle. There are questions to answer and pictures to color. 
Elementary school learners investigate the attributes of a square. They discover that squares are polygons and examine squares found in everyday life. They concentrate on connecting the word, square, with the shape. As an extension,maybe you could have a magician visit the class and make a square appear from out of a hat.
Explore five basic shapes- square, rectangle, triangle, circle, and stars with youngsters. They will participate in hands-on activities, draw each shape, name each shape. They also get to eat things that are in the shapes they have just learned to identify.
Hilarious! Use the characters from SpongeBob Square Pants to practice solving genetics problems! Yellow sponge body color is dominant to blue. Square body shape is dominant to round body shape. Did someone switch Mr. Krab's baby with one that has short eyeballs? The stories are fictitious, but the concepts are still sound. This instructional activity, which comes with an answer key, will make solving Punnett Squares much less square!
In this biology activity, students use the information provided about Sponge Bob and their skills of genetics to respond to each question. They determine the phenotype for each genotype given. Students also create a Punnet square given the information.
An outstanding lesson on teaching the basic shapes and polygon names to young geometers is here for you. In it, learners investigate the role of basic polygons in the strength of structures. They use geoboards, rubber bands, streamed video, and engage in games and in-class activities that should strengthen their understanding of the world of geometry.
Pupils identify and explore the attributes of polygons. They design and create a quilt square using polygons, and produce a class quilt.
Students recognize and name each shape and, after doing a hands-on experiment with the different shapes, the preschool students draw each shape to the best of their ability.
Upper graders explore the concept of volume by determining the amount of sand that is needed to fill the long-jump pit or any rectangular/square shaped container. They explore the Math Forum website, construct three-dimensional figures using cubes, and calculate the volume of cereal boxes and the sand pit.
Learners examine abstract art. In this abstract art lesson, students define abstract art and view examples of abstract art. Learners examine the art of Piet Mondrian and his use of straight and angular lines and geometric shapes. Students then paint their own abstract art.
Shapes are everywhere in the world around us, from rectangular doors to the circular wheels of a car. The second instructional activity in this series opens the eyes of young mathematicians to this wonderful world of shapes as they search the classroom, playground, or other locations around the school for common geometric figures. Each time a shape is found, learners draw a picture of the object and label the shape it represents. This simple activity provides an excellent opportunity for children to practice identifying shapes in a fun and meaningful context.
Kindergartners identify geometric shapes by planting a fall garden. They start their seeds in containers that have different shapes, and keep track of their plants based on those shapes. This brilliantly designed and incredibly thorough lesson plan combines geometry and gardening. It has all of the worksheets and instructions you need to successfully implement the tasks with your youngsters. A rubric to judge student learning is also included at the end of the plan. Very good!
Fourth graders use dancing methodology in a polygon and shape activity. For this shape and dance lesson, 4th graders discuss shapes in dance, math, and everyday life. Students use dancing activities to recognize and analyze shapes.
Learners identify five basic geometric shapes by naming them according to their defining characteristics. They draw the shapes and identify food with similar shapes.
Pupils recognize and describe squares. In this ESL shape vocabulary development lesson, students view a magician pulling shapes out of a hat and identify the square. Pupils sort and describe a variety of shapes taken from a "shapes box." Students play checkers and count the squares on the game board.
Third graders determine what a square is. In this geometry lesson, 3rd graders discuss what a square is and connect the word with the shape. The play a game of checkers noting that the board is made of squares. They are able to distinguish a square from other polygons and use the word in English, Navajo, and Spanish.
Students study squares. In this math instructional activity, students discuss the characteristics of a square. Students watch a magician perform a magic trick using squares. Students construct squares.
Sharpen your pencil and grab a ruler, it's time to draw some quadrilaterals! Given the definition of a parallelogramrectangle, and rhombus, learners draw examples and nonexamples of each figure. The three definitions are then used to draw and identify a fourth mystery shape. A great supplement to your introductory instructional activity on quadrilaterals.

New Review Shapes

Investigate the properties of three-dimensional figures with this Arctic-themed math lesson. Beginning with a class discussion about different types of solid figures present in the classroom, young mathematicians are then given a two-sided worksheet asking them to draw 3-D shapes, identify their parts, and create cubes from a series of nets. Though the lesson does not provide any detailed information about the Arctic, it is does provide a fun change of pace to a geometry unit in the upper-elementary grades.
