Prior to opening this lesson, cut multiple pieces of yarn for each student in the class.
In opening this lesson, have available various types of shapes pictured on Crayola® Construction Paper. Ask students to trace the shapes one at a time, with all students in the class tracing the same figure together. For example, the first shape students may trace with their fingers could be a square. As they do so, ask them to describe what happens to the create the shape.
Distribute yarn pieces to students. Ask them to select one piece and experiment with it by attempting to create different shapes. Students may use the construction paper models is they choose to do so. Provide time in the lesson for students to discuss what they are doing with the yard to create the shapes.
Once students have attempted to make all reviewed shapes on the construction paper models, invite them to tour their classroom and find similar shapes in this environment. What do they find? Have them identify an object, identify the type of shape, and talk about the characteristics of that shape.
Provide students with a blank piece of construction paper. Have them self-select a shape to draw using Crayola Crayons. Encourage students to use a majority of the paper for their shape drawings. Use Crayola School Glue to glue a piece of yarn to the shape. Allow to dry overnight.
Once the glue has dried, have students write their names on the construction paper that contains their self-selected shapes. If appropriate, have students also write the name of the shapes created.
