In this lesson, students will give clues about different shapes to their partners to build their knowledge of different shapes. You may introduce the lesson by reviewing shapes using the Have Fun Teaching Shape Song. Then, distribute game boards and activity cards to partners. As students give clues and guess, circulate around the classroom to listen to discussions students have about different shapes. After the games are over, share students discussions that you heard to promote shape vocabulary like sides or angles.
