Comparing and Contrasting Shapes

All of yesterday’s shape talk got me thinking – thinking so much that I had to create something new!

I put together this Comparing Shapes set to help you work on some shape comparisons.  Each poster is designed to encourage students to look at the number of sides and corners (also new great vocabulary to introduce!) each shape has.  Once they can isolate these details and use them to focus on the differences and similarities of each shape, they will have a better understanding of what makes each shape.

This set also includes a chart so that after you’ve explored each shape, you can put all of the information for all of the shapes on the same graph and see them all at once.

Asking the same questions about different shapes, so that children can see the different answers and how they are all connected, can build children’s understanding of the topic.
