Teaching Shapes Tip: Instruct your learner the meaning of corners and right angles prior to watching the video. Discuss where you can see specific shapes in everyday life. E.g. "A clock is a circle." Create works of art with basic shapes for a more holistic approach. Spark enthusiasm with games such as I-spy while using Where's Waldo books. E.g. "I spy a triangle."

Standards

Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining 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.
