Using the 2D Shapes Activity

Students will look at the picture of the real life item on the “clip card” and they will decide what shape it is.

Then they will drag a clothespin of their choice over to the correct shape on the right side of the card.

For example, students will see the donut on the card and determine that it is a circle. Then they will drag the clothespin over to the circle on the right side of the card.

This continues through all of the slides in the activity.

I hope your students enjoy it!
