# Lesson 5- Combine and Find New Shapes - Lesson for Grade 1, Chapter - 2D and 3D Shapes

In Lesson 5, "Combine and Find New Shapes," first-grade students will embark on an exciting journey into the world of 2D and 3D shapes, a crucial part of the Geometry unit. Through engaging activities, students will explore the fundamentals of shapes, starting with simple worksheets to identify and draw basic 2D shapes like ovals and triangles. They will then progress to more complex shapes, including hexahedrons (a type of 3D shape) and rhombuses, enhancing their understanding and skills.

This lesson is designed to not only familiarize students with the names and properties of various shapes but also to encourage them to recognize these shapes in their everyday environment. By practicing drawing circles, squares, and other shapes, learners will develop their fine motor skills and spatial awareness, foundational elements for more advanced mathematical concepts. Recognizing 3D shapes around them further deepens their understanding of the world, making this lesson an essential step in building a solid mathematical foundation.

Understanding and manipulating shapes is not only a key mathematical skill but also important for developing problem-solving abilities and creativity.

• ### Activity 1 / Shapes Worksheet

Matching skills help children to get ready for higher level math and sequencing skills. Here’s a tricky preschool matching worksheet that will challenge your child to pay attention to the little details to find the right answer.
• Recognize a tricky pattern;
• Sort through similar patterns to find the right answer;
• Strengthen problem-solving skills as kids create strategies to find the right picture;
• Build confidence after a job well-done.
As your child progresses through more challenging tasks, your little learner will build confidence in his or her own abilities. Your child will love working with these bright shapes, and will be ready in no time to move onto even trickier patterns!

• ### Activity 2 / Drawing Ovals And Triangles with Fun Printable

Shapes worksheets for preschool is an easy and effective way to remember shapes.
Our Robot needs help again! Please, trace its face and then draw the missing shapes that are oval. In the second part of the worksheet triangle shapes are missing. Revise the shapes again. Do you remember how to draw them? Do you remember how they are called?
Revise the shapes, use shape worksheets for children by Kids Academy.

• ### Activity 3 / Practice Drawing Hexahedrons And a Rhombus Worksheet

Our tracing shapes worksheets help kids learn how to draw shapes easily.
In the first part of this worksheet we practice drawing hexahedron shapes. First trace the Robot's face and then draw the missing shapes yourself. After that trace the face again, now you are supposed to draw not only hexahedron shapes, but also rhombus shapes. Be attentive.
