Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Students will analyze characteristics of geometric shapes. Students need to know the defining attributes (and other attributes that are consequences of the definitions) of a circle, square, triangle and rectangle prior to this lesson.
Students need to experience the shapes by touching, seeing, and discussing the number of sides and/or corners of each with peers or the whole class. Students should be given many opportunities to find shapes in their environment. Last, using definitions from class, students find an object in their environment and communicate why it is like the shape of their choice and not like another shape.
