We have learned so much about 2D shapes.
These were our Learning Goals and Success Criteria for this math unit, which also involved a lot of problem solving. We are learning to persevere at solving problems.
We will identify two-dimensional shapes and sort and classify them by their attributes.
· I can identify and describe two-dimensional shapes.
· I can sort and classify 2D shapes by their attributes using concrete materials and pictures.
Identifying and describing, sorting and classifying 2-D shapes:
We will compose and decompose two-dimensional shapes.
· I can compose patterns, pictures, and designs using 2-D shapes.
· I can identify and describe shapes within other shapes.· I can cover outline puzzles with 2-D shapes.
What CAN you make from squares??
Composing pictures and designs using 2-D shapes:
We composed and described pictures and designs using 2-D shapes (and made charts of which shapes we used):
We solved some open ended problems using shapes:
We have also been exploring shapes in art and are learning the difference between geometric shapes and organic shapes.
