Second grade is working on their shape unit this week. Mrs Peterson’s class started by organizing shapes. They were each given a bag of shapes to organize in their own way. They organized by shape, size, sides, and angles. They decided that the most efficient way to organize them would be by angles and sides. They also were able to identify shape names that go along with their sides and angles. They learned about quadrilaterals, triangles, pentagons, octagons, and hexagons. Their challenge was to see where they see these shapes in their everyday lives! Ask your 2nd grader where they see these shapes everyday! You’ll be surprised with how many there are!
