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. 
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.
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.
Students add a new angle to block play with this spatial challenge. In this early childhood math instructional activity, students use creative-thinking, patterning, visual-spatial, and fine-motor skills to explore the different shapes that can be made with a few squares.
Students explore the shape of things as they bend, twist, and turn. In this early childhood lesson plan, students develop social, creative-thinking, and language skills and spatial awareness as they use their bodies to create geometric shapes.
Fourth graders use dancing methodology in a polygon and shape activity. In this shape and dance lesson plan, 4th graders discuss shapes in dance, math, and everyday life. Students use dancing activities to recognize and analyze shapes.
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 worksheet, which comes with an answer key, will make solving Punnett Squares much less square!
In this biology worksheet, 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.
Here is a fabulous activity on shapes for young elementary learners. They view a presentation on shapes that is led by the teacher, then construct shapes on their own using paper, straws, tape, and other supplies. Fantastic worksheets are embedded in the plan, as is the weblink that the teacher accesses to show the presentation. A terrific math lesson plan!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 explore characteristics of shapes by making and using tangram sets. They discover how the tangram pieces are related to one another, and determine how many different combinations of the triangles, squares, and parallelograms in tangram sets can make a given shape.
Ask elementary pupils to explore shapes in everyday objects. They will discuss the elements of design and describe the shapes they see in visual images. Students will then design and "build" a new 3D shape. Finally they will show and explain the shapes with their classmates.
Young scholars 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.
