In this Web Quest you will investigate geometric shapes. You will collect information and resources from the web, using them to identify geometric shapes. This Web Quest guides you through an examination of shapes. How is a square similar to a rectangle? How are they different? How is a triangle different from a circle? Where else have you seen these shapes?  Aim. For Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade Students to identify shapes and to identify a reduction or enlargement of a given shape.  Rationale. This Web Quest leads you through assignments introducing you to basic geometric shapes. In this Web Quest, you will be able to identify those shapes; comparing and contrasting them. The students will use this information to describe things or to give information (telling what objects are shaped like, and how many sides they have).  Learners. This Shape Web Quest is designed for Kindergarten through Second Grade students. The subject matter and activities are appropriate for any four – seven year old. Teachers of a specific group may alter the content of this Web Quest to fit the needs of their particular group.   Prerequisites. Before beginning this Web Quest, students should be able to -          read at a first grade level or above -          browse the web -          be interested in shapes  Subject Matter. The Web Quest revolves around basic geometric shapes.    Goals and Objectives. The main goal of this Web Quest is to identify basic geometric shapes.              The students will -          access information on the web -          evaluate different sources on the web -          analyze basic geometric shapes -          distinguish the difference between basic shapes, comparing and contrasting each.  K-4 Grade Standards in Mathematics (Louisiana; 1997)  {MA.K-4.G-1-E} determining the relationships among shapes;  {MA.K-4.G-4-E} drawing, constructing models, and comparing geometric shapes,with special attention to developing spatial sense;  {MA.K-4.G-6-E} demonstrating the connection of geometry to the other strands and to real-life situations   Instructional Plan. Before the students are allowed to work on this Web Quest, be sure that they know how to use the links and search the internet. The assignments in this activity asks students to observe a presentation, listen to a story, and synthesize that information to complete activities on geometric shapes.   Materials.           Paper                         Pencils                         Crayons                         Scissors                         Computer with internet  Assessment and Evaluations.  See Rubric; partial credit may be given.  Appendices.              Glossary Accurately – free from error; the truth;        without making mistakes.  Compare – to examine two or more objects,        ideas, people, things, etc; to describe        how they are similar or alike.  Contrast – to compare in order to show differences; to describe how they are different.  Enlargement – to increase; to expand; to         make larger  Extend – to stretch; too increase; to make         larger.  Credits:Some of the resources on this web quest are external.I would like to thank their creators for their material.I would also like to thank my 5 year old nephew,    Seth Lewis, for helping me choose my theme.
