Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

  • Approach 1 : Ask students to create drawings using only geometric shapes;

  • Approach 2 : Walk around the school and ask students to identify and point to geometric shapes they find. You can perform this activity also using photographs.

  • Approach 3: DIY - Cardboard geometric shapes puzzle

Step by step:

  1. First, draw the geometric shape on the cardboard

  2. Cut out the geometric shape

  3. Draw and cut a square around the hollow shape to form a piece.

  4. Do that with all shapes cut out.

  5. Paint the squares and the geometric shapes. The colors should not match! How to play: Spread the shapes and the squares. Ask students to match them.

  • Approach 4 : Use modeling clay to create geometric shapes;

  • Approach 5: Go treasure hunting around the school. Here's how it works:

Go with the kids to an open space;

Tell them the geometric shape they should look for;

Now they must go out looking for somewhere in the school that shape. Turn this game into a competition to motivate the students. Write down the scores when they find the shapes and tell them at the end!

  • Approach 6 : Promote an origami festival with your students! You can find many examples on the internet. You can use any kind of paper. Every time you fold it, ask students what geometric shape it forms.
