The Basic Shapes
What is the aim of teaching shapes?
Learning shapes not only helps children identify and organize visual information, it helps them learn skills in other curriculum areas including reading, math, and science. For example, an early step in understanding numbers and letters is to recognize their shape.
Students will be able to:
- Recognize and name different shapes.
- Identify shapes they see in their classroom and surroundings.
- Sort shapes into categories based on their attributes.
- Draw various shapes.
- Compare and contrast shapes.
