# Making Shapes - Circles and Squares - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Shapes

In the "Making Shapes - Circles and Squares" lesson, kindergarteners will embark on a fun and interactive journey to recognize, trace, and draw two fundamental shapes: circles and squares. This lesson is a key part of the Early Logic and Geometry unit, laying the groundwork for young learners to understand basic geometric concepts and develop their spatial awareness.

Students will start with the "Trace and Draw a Circle and a Square Worksheet," enhancing their fine motor skills and getting familiar with the shapes' properties. This activity is crucial, as it helps children distinguish between the round edges of a circle and the straight lines of a square, promoting their observation and differentiation skills.

The adventure continues with the "Cinderella Geometry Maze Worksheet," where students will apply their knowledge in a story-based context, exploring geometry through the enchanting world of fairy tales. This will not only make learning more engaging but also show how shapes are part of our everyday life.

Lastly, with the "Peter Pan Worksheet," students will further reinforce their understanding by identifying circles and squares in a variety of contexts, encouraging them to think critically and creatively.
