Rationale:  Students apply knowledge of geometric shapes and their attributes to draw and accurately label triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

CCSS: 2.G.A.1

Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of faces. 1Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

1Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.

Other CCSS for which this activity can be adapted:


Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g. rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g. having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g. quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
