Geometric Character

Design a character using geometric shapes. Use Crayola® Dry-Erase Crayons for a no mess, temporary product!

  • Grade 2
    Grade 3
  • 30 Minutes or Less
  • Directions

    1. Students review the identifying traits of the following geometric shapes: triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
    2. Give students individual white boards, or a space on a classroom white board. Photo paper or white plastic plates can be substituted for white boards.
    3. Provide students with Crayola® Dry-Erase Crayons.
    4. Ask the students to draw a character using only the following geometric shapes: triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. Remind them that if they make errors, they can easily be erased and changed.
    5. Ask the students to find a partner and take turns identifying the geometric shapes they find in each others’ characters.
  • Standards

    LA: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade level topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

    MATH: 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.

    MATH: Reason with shapes and their attributes.

    VA: Students will investigate, plan and work through materials and ideas to make works of art and design.

  • Adaptations

    Children create a writing piece about their character to present to the class.

    Use white paper and Crayola® Washable Markers in place of dry-erase crayons.

    Have children select a specific character from a book or movie. In addition to identifying the shapes in pairs, children can try to identify the character illustrated!
