Lesson Plan: Explorations with Shapes - Kindergarten - Grade KG
Grade:KG
Summary:Students describe, identify and compare two-dimensional figures. They also name and demonstrate the relative position of objects using directional words.
Ohio Standards Connection
Content Area:
Mathematics
 
Standard: Geometry and Spatial Sense
Benchmark: C. Sort and compare two-dimensional figures and three-dimensional objects according to their characteristics and properties.
Indicator: 1. Identify and sort two- dimensional shapes and three- dimensional objects. For example:
1 - Identify and describe two-dimensional figures and three-dimensional objects from the environment using the child's own vocabulary
2 - Sort shapes and objects into groups based on student-defined categories.
3 - Select all shapes or objects of one type from a group.
4 - Build two-dimensional figures using paper shapes or tangrams; build simple three-dimensional objects using blocks.
 
Standard: Geometry and Spatial Sense
Benchmark: F. Describe location, using comparative (before, after), directional (above, below), and positional (first, last) words.
Indicator: 2. Name and demonstrate the relative position of objects as follows:
1 - place objects over, under, inside, outside, on, beside, between, above, below, on top of, upside-down, behind, in back of, in front of;
2 - describe placement of objects with terms such as on, inside, outside, above, below, over, under, beside, between, in front of, behind.
 
Standard: Mathematical Processes
Benchmark: I. Communicate mathematical thinking by using everyday language and appropriate mathematical language.
 
Standard: Patterns, Functions and Algebra
Benchmark: A. Sort, classify and order objects by size, number and other properties, and describe the attributes used.
Indicator: 1. Sort, classify and order objects by size, number and other properties. For example:
1 - Identify how objects are alike and different.
2 - Order three events or objects according to a given attribute, such as time or size.
3 - Recognize and explain how objects can be classified in more than one way.
4 - Identify what attribute was used to sort groups of objects that have already been sorted.
