Learning About Shapes: A 2 week unit of lesson plans on 2D and 3D shapes for F/1/2

Summary:

This document is designed to expand on and broaden student’s knowledge of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. The lessons are designed for students to not only learn shape names, but the features of shapes with a lot of the lessons emphasizing on the following feature concepts; sides, corners and edges. This fits seamlessly into the Australian Curriculum where the aim is for students to be provided with educational opportunities to describe shapes and objects using everyday words such as ‘corners’, ‘edges’ and ‘faces’.  Overall the aim is for students to recognise and classify familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using obvious features.

The lessons throughout this document cater for Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences as they are diverse in nature and cater for many different learning styles. I have endeavored to make the ten lessons as hands on as possible so children can be excited and motivated about the topic and learn through doing, this is why I have students outside exploring the environment, using construction blocks to make their own school and working together in being detectives to investigate shapes.
