Finding Shapes in the Environment
We went on a shape hunt around our school. Working in pairs and using clipboards, the children recorded their observations. We encouraged them to look for a variety of shapes and share what they found with others.
There was much interest in this activity and great math talk amongst the children so we took pictures of the places that interested them the most.
The next day we printed large photos of these places and put them at a table with large overhead transparencies and permanent markers. The children were invited to put the overhead on top of the photos and outline the different shapes they found.
