Identifying Shapes

Lesson Plan Published 4/27/16 Last updated on 8/13/18

In this geometry lesson, students identify shapes in the world around them, and then share what they know about the attributes of shapes in a digital presentation.

Note: This lesson is intended to be used at the end of a unit on shapes. Students should have already learned about the attributes of various shapes and can identify shapes by sight before attempting this activity.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:

  • Identify parallel lines, angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals

  • List the attributes of parallel lines, angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals

  • Use Adobe Spark to create a digital presentation of what they have learned

  • Adobe Spark

    Adobe Spark is an easy-to-use tool that helps you turn your ideas into compelling social graphics, web stories, and animated videos

This is a fun resource. I might pass this onto my maths teacher at school to encourage some creative learning.
