Geometric Shapes Common Core 1.G Simple Simple Math Center
The children really enjoyed this math center this week. All you need is play dough and some geometric solids. It made them take a close look at the shapes and their attributes. The children made the shapes and then recorded their work with a digital snapshot. They really worked together well. I was impressed with the shapes they made.
This activity addresses the core standard:
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and
three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation,
overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
