How well do we know our shapes?
Prior to opening this lesson, prepare an envelope of shapes for student groups. Consider putting a circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, etc. in the envelope. Create one envelope for each student group.
Ask each group of students to lay out their shapes in a random order. Students may choose to organize their shapes into a circle.
Now it is time to play! Call out a shape. Students go to that shape on the floor. For example, the teacher may name a square. All students in group should head to and stand next to the square on the floor. Repeat as is necessary to ensure all students know their shapes.
As an alternate way to play, have student groups combine their shapes and lay them out in a circle on the floor. Play music for the students and allow them to begin moving around the circle, from shape to shape. When you stop the music, call out a shape, such as "square". All students standing on a square are to sit down. The game is over when all students are sitting.
