2D shapes teaching resources

Hi all! Happy Thursday! Only 3 weeks to the hols after tomorrow!

I just wanted to share a quick resource of two hands-on activities that we did in class  yesterday to investigate the properties of 2D shapes.

The first one was determining if shapes tessellate. The children made predictions and then used shapes (made from card) to check if they were right.

They then did a shape factfile for two shapes of their choice, as below.

To download the materials used in this lesson (templates of the 9 shapes to be photocopied on coloured card, shape factfiles and a tessellation investigation sheet), click here!
