Explore 3-D shapes with your students and help them identify and talk about the relevant attributes of three-dimensional shapes, all while using real-world examples! Use this as a stand-alone lesson or alongside the Shape Models lesson.
Students will love composing and decomposing two-dimensional shapes using tangram puzzle pieces. Use this plan alone or to frontload key vocabulary and concepts taught in the lesson plan **Know Your Shapes.**
Before young learners can understand the different properties of gases, liquids, and solids, they will first need to understand the properties of a shape. Working in with 2D shapes first helps your students build a strong foundation for later studies in both math and science. Excite their interest in math studies by showing them the many different careers that draw on this important knowledge.
