Learning Shapes - Math Activity


Here's an idea that can be used as a short assignment or as a major project. Ask students to find shapes and lines in their everyday surroundings. The teacher can decide how many of the ideas to use. The assignment can be done on a poster board, construction paper, foldable or regular notebook paper. In class, a simple worksheet with a format similar to what is written below could be done in class or as homework.

Another idea Let students cut pictures out of magazines and paste them into appropriate categories. Name the shape and characteristics.
