Happy Halloween

The Lucky Cat needs your help to drag the geometric shapes and fit them in some Halloween pictures. You'll assemble a fun puzzle. Did you know the black cat gives us good energy and luck? It helps us to overcome difficulties, obstacles, and challenges. Now that you know that black cats are good have fun dragging the geometric shapes to where they fit and form a beautiful picture related to the spooky season. Puzzles are a great way to relax and learn while playing.

Teacher’s tips

Level of Education: Elementary School

Subject: Mathematics

Theme: Geometric shapes

Age: 05 to 07 years old

Geometric shapes are all around us in our daily lives. We can stimulate the kids to be aware of the forms around them. There are flat shapes, non-flat shapes, polygons, non-polygons, polyhedra, non-polyhedra, Platonic solids, and geometric shapes in which each part of the figure resembles the whole, called fractals. The teacher can propose many activities to identify geometric shapes.

This game uses these shapes in a playful and fun way since the kid will play to fit each geometric shape in a Halloween picture, which contextualizes the game. The Lucky Cat is the main character of this game and represents a good side of the spooky season because it represents good energy and luck, which is the opposite of what many people think. The cat will be a way to encourage empathy in the game.

The other characters can be related to the black cat. Using technology as a tool is easier to work with geometric shapes. This tool helps the learning process during the classes. There are many different ways to work with geometric shapes: a movie session, drawing, and small plays. This topic has a lot of images that teachers can use in the teaching-learning process. There are some songs about these shapes, such as "The shape song #1 and #2" (by Super Simple Songs). Geometry is a fundamental part of mathematics because it has absolute importance on the logic skills organization and in the making of most of our daily activities.

Pedagogical goals

  • To introduce students to flat geometric shapes;
  • To associate flat geometric shapes with objects;
  • To identify flat shapes and name them;
  • To highlight similarities and differences between the shapes in the puzzle;
  • To create new shapes from the flat geometric shapes;
  • To draw using geometric shapes;
  • To create stories using the geometric shapes on the online game;
  • To create puppets using geometric shapes, name them, and insert them in the students’ stories;
  • To realize that geometry is essential in our daily lives.
