Let's find out how we know our shapes!
Introduce or review geometric shapes such as circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, etc. with students. Hold a class discussion of the similarities and differences between the shapes. Have students use construction paper and Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons to illustrate mastery of each of the discussed shapes.
Students collect clean, recycled boxes, such as shoes boxes milk cartons, etc. Remind students that each box needs to have an attached lid.
Students will be painting the background of each recycled cardboard box and then add illustrations of circles. Have students spread newspaper over their work area and put on a Crayola® Art Smock before beginning this process. Using Crayola® Washable Paint and So Big® Brushes, students paint their boxes. Allow paint to dry overnight.
Encourage students to add the same number of circles to their box blocks so that matching circle (or dot) sides can be stacked face to face. Use a different color paint for the circles/dots. Add Crayola® Glitter Glue to the dots. Dry overnight.
Allow class time for students to manipulate their blocks, matching circles/dots face to face as they build. Have students tell a story about what they build.
