I can identify by name various shapes. I can draw various shapes, showing an understanding of their unique characteristics. I can use creative thinking as I explore alternative possibilities for shapes. I can draw 2 or more shapes, and turn them into a new combination shape.
GEOMETRIC SHAPES / FAST DRAW FUN- Students learn or review basic shapes. Dougal draws them and students emulate. Differences and similarities are discussed. Dougal demonstrates combination shapes, and students construct them on paper. Shapes are turned into simple cartoons. This amuses students, and their engagement helps the lessons be memorable. The premise of turning a shape into an object reminds children that shapes exist in their environment. The trick of turning one object into another shows that a shape can be inherent in different. Students may be asked to observe a shape and use creative thinking suggesting a possible thing to draw from it. Conversely they may be asked to observe a thing or creature, and discern underlying shapes, and use them to draw it. Classroom teacher need only monitor students.

Help passing out and collecting materials by any number of persons is appreciated, but optional.

Grade K

Grade K: Mathematics: Geometry: Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes. Cluster #6: Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.
Grade K: Mathematics: Geometry: Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres Cluster #1: Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, and next to.
K: Visual Arts: Creating: Anchor Standard 1: Engage in exploration and imaginative play with materials.
K: Visual Arts: Creating: Anchor Standard 1; Engage collaboratively in creative art-making in response to an artistic problem.

Grade 1

Grade 1: Mathematics: Geometry: Reason with shapes and their attributes. Cluster #1: Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Grade 1: Mathematics: Geometry: Reason with shapes and their attributes. Cluster #2: Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Grade 1: Visual Arts: Creating: Anchor Standard 1: Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work; Engage collaboratively in exploration and imaginative play with materials.
Grade 1: Visual Arts: Creating: Anchor Standard 1: Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work; Use observation and investigation in preparation for making a work of art.

Grade 2

Grade 2: Mathematics: Geometry: Reason with shapes and their attributes. Cluster #1: Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons and cubes.
Grade 2: Mathematics: Geometry: Reason with shapes and their attributes. Cluster #3: Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
Anchor Standard 1: Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work: Brainstorm collaboratively multiple approaches to an art or design problem.
Anchor Standard 2: Organize and develop artistic ideas and work: Repurpose objects to make something new.
