Students identify shapes that are squares. In this square activity, 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 activity, which comes with an answer key, will make solving Punnett Squares much less square!
In this biology worksheet, middle schoolers 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.
Expose youngsters to 3-D objects in a hands-on learning activity involving marshmallows and toothpicks. Engage your young mathematicians by introducing them to 3-D shapes by means of a story book. Explore 3-D shapes by manipulating marshmallows and toothpicks into cubes and pyramids. Using food as a learning tool is a great way to make learning fun for kids of all ages, especially youngsters. The math lesson includes safety tips as well as connections and extensions that can be done with upper grades.
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.
Students identify and explore the attributes of polygons. They design and create a quilt square using polygons, and produce a class quilt.
Youngsters recognize that triangles can be combined together to make various shapes. The learning activity provides a series of seven steps that engage children in applying transformations to triangles. Pupils use a quilt template and triangle template to arrange eight triangles onto the shape finder, in order to analyze and recognize geometric shapes. All templates are included in the lesson.
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.
Students examine abstract art. In this abstract art lesson, students define abstract art and view examples of abstract art. Students 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 lesson 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.
Fourth graders use dancing methodology in a polygon and shape activity. In this shape and dance lesson, 4th graders discuss shapes in dance, math, and everyday life. Students use dancing activities to recognize and analyze shapes.
Students identify five basic geometric shapes by naming them according to their defining characteristics. They draw the shapes and identify food with similar shapes.
Students 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. Students 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 lesson, 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 lesson on quadrilaterals.
