Shows different 2-d shapes. Call the shape shop and describe the shape's properties in order to buy it. Can confirm shape at the end by using letter number. Can be done as a paired activity. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: 2.G.1, Reason with shapes and their attributes; 3.G.1,Reason with shapes and their attributes.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
