Practice

Practice what you have learned by completing the following activities; 

Identify 2-D shapes         https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/identify-2-dimensional-shapes

Count Sides and Angles https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/count-sides-and-angles

Equal Parts https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/equal-parts

Halves, Thirds and Fourths https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/halves-thirds-and-fourths

Evaluate

Nowthat you have learned about shapes and partitioning shapes, itís time to show what you know by creating a Shape Robot.   

Create a shape robot using the construction paper shapes your teacher has provided using the following criteria; 

  • The shape robot must be created with shapes and partitioned shapes. 
  • It must be created with at least 4 different shapes.
  • It must include at least 2 different partitioned shapes. Remember,you can partition shapes to create other shapes. 

Once you have created your robot, fill out a Shape Robot Data Sheet.
