Kindergarten, lesson # 2
DIRECTED LESSON
Get Set

Ask students to identify geometric shapes. Can they find these shapes in the art print example and in the room environment?


Focus

What kind of house or apartment building do you live in? Does it have more than one story? What are some shapes you might see when you look at the outside of your house? What is around your house? (Trees, grass, flowers, other houses, garage, stores...)


Develop

  1. Students will make a collage of their house and its environment with the precut paper shapes. They will move the shapes around until they are satisfied. Then they will glue them down.

  2. Add details with markers.


Evaluation

Ask students to tell about their pictures. What shapes did they use?


Summary

It's easy to find shapes. They are all around us.
