# Making Shapes 2D - Lesson for Grade 1, Chapter - Math in Shapes

In the lesson "Making Shapes 2D," as part of the "Math in Shapes" chapter within the Geometry unit, first-grade students will embark on an engaging exploration of two-dimensional shapes. This lesson focuses on building foundational understanding and skills in recognizing, differentiating, and drawing simple 2D shapes, such as circles, squares, rectangles, and ovals. Through a series of carefully designed activities, including worksheets on 2D and 3D shapes, easy drawing exercises of ovals and rectangles, and printable practice sheets for drawing circles and squares, students will enhance their visual-spatial awareness and precision in drawing.

Understanding 2D shapes is crucial not only as a fundamental geometry concept but also as a building block for more complex mathematical concepts and real-world applications. Recognizing shapes helps students identify and organize visual information, which is essential in subjects like math, art, and science. By learning to identify and create these shapes, students develop critical observational skills, improve hand-eye coordination, and foster a deeper appreciation for the geometric patterns that exist in the world around them. This lesson sets the stage for a lifelong journey of mathematical learning and discovery.

• ### Activity 1 / 2D and 3D Shapes Worksheet

This traceable sheet will show your child that there is more than one way to draw a square, a triangle, a rectangle, and a circle. Has your child ever heard of 3D? Maybe you have taken them to see a 3D movie, or they have even been exposed to some fantastic 3D art. Well, if they have ever wondered how 3D and 2D works, you can introduce them to the concept with this simple worksheet. Hold their hands as they trace on the dotted lines to make a 2D shape to match each 3D shape.

• ### Activity 2 / Easy Drawing of Ovals And Rectangles Worksheet

Free geometry worksheets are available at Kids Academy. Make learning more interesting and fun.
An oval is not as round as a circle. Its form reminds the form of an egg. Start at the firefly, trace an oval, pass to drawing one. Look at the picture. Does your oval remind it? Try to remember the shape.
Now let's learn to draw a rectangle looking just like a TV! Trace the shape first. Start at the firefly. A rectangle has four sides, but it isn't square, because two sides are short and two sides are long.

Let's help our little funny Robot and revise shapes. First trace the Robot's face. Then help to draw the missing square shapes which will suddenly become the Robot's eyes. In the next part trace it again and draw the parts that are round. Make sure you remember the names of these shapes.
