In previous lessons, students sorted and identified two-dimensional shapes based on their sides and corners. In previous grades, students built and drew squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, and hexagons.
In this lesson, students recognize and draw shapes based on a given number of sides or corners. Students continue to practice shape vocabulary (quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon) and describe shapes based on their defining attributes (MP6).
Activity 2: What Shape Could It Be?
- Recognize and draw triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons.
- Let’s recognize and draw triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons.
