# Geometry 2

Geometry in kindergarten involves the basics of measurement, shapes, and spatial reasoning. Designed and reviewed by teachers, this guided lesson gives kids an overview of these concepts with clear instruction and engaging exercises. Geometry practice in kindergarten can help bolster the skills needed for higher-level concepts in the later grades. You can give kids even more practice by downloading and printing the accompanying worksheets.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities.

## Shapes Song

Three sides, four sides, no sides at all to see! Kids learn all about basic shapes—circles, squares, rectangles and triangles—and their attributes in this sweet shapes song. Early learners will love to sing along and watch the simple animation, which highlights shapes and real-world examples of each. This understanding of shapes will give kids a solid foundation for learning harder geometry skills.

## Summertime Spot the Shapes

Shapes are everywhere. In fact, a lot of the time they're hiding in plain sight! In this game your students' shape recognition skills will be put to the test as they try to pick out shapes they might see on a hot summer's day spent at the pool. As they carefully study the swimming pool scene, they will learn to recognize shapes regardless of their size or orientation and successfully pick them out in a natural environment.

## Ski Race: Shapes

Skiers, take your mark! In this fast-paced ski race, your child must correctly identify basic shapes to help her character move down the mountain. After a few times down the mountain, he will feel comfortable recognizing shapes, and may even grab the gold medal.

## Floyd's Pattern Quiz

Patterns are essential building blocks of math and this fun game is the perfect way to practice pattern recognition. For each pattern presented, be it AB, ABC, or AAB, Floyd will introduce two different objects and it's your kids jobs to determine which one successfully completes the pattern. Additionally, your kid's shape knowledge will come in handy as he examines the patterns and tries to determine the best fit.

## The Super Shapes

Can the Horrible Hexagons be stopped? Find out in this story about the Super Shapes, a team of brave shapes that have banded together to fight crime in the city of Geometron.

## Ski Racer: 3D Shapes

Help your kindergartener hone their budding geometry skills with this fast-moving game Ski Racer: 3D Shapes. This educational adventure challenges young learners to quickly identify various 2D and 3D shapes in order to guide their Brainzy avatar down the ski slope and across the finish line. This math game is a fun way to help kids differentiate between cones, pyramids, cylinders, and more!

## Dino Crunch: 3D Shapes

Ready, set, crunch! These dinosaurs are hungry for 3D shapes, but they need help differentiating between spheres, cylinders, cubes, pyramids, and rectangular prisms. After choosing to play solo or against another dinosaur, players will need to help their dinosaur identify the correct shapes to eat. Dino Crunch: 3D Shapes is a great way to introduce kindergarteners to early geometry concepts.

## 2D and 3D Shape Match

Circle ... sphere! In this interactive memory game, kids can explore common 2D and 3D shapes by matching them. This repeated exposure to shapes helps children understand basic geometric concepts that will help them excel in math for years to come. Plus, it's fun to boot!

## 2D and 3D Shape Sort: Factory

This 2D and 3D shape sort game teaches students that two-dimensional shapes are flat, and three-dimensional shapes are solid. They are then tasked with helping Muggo sort common 2D and 3D shapes, such as cubes, cylinders, squares, triangles, pyramids and circles, into the right boxes. This is particularly important geometry practice for students in kindergarten to second grade.

## Airplane Tangram

It's a bird ... no, it's a plane! Kids practice putting shapes together with this airplane tangram. Perfect for helping early learners practice how shapes fit together to form larger shapes, this tangram puzzle requires critical thinking skills that every kid should practice. Plus, it helps children master early shape recognition, despite size or orientation.
