5. Geometric Shapes Lesson


Here are 2 kinesthetic classroom lesson plans for learning about geometric shapes. Lesson 1. needs open floor space. Lesson 2. can be done sitting in seats facing the teacher.
 
Lesson 1. Making geometric shapes on the floor

Students lie on floor, stretched out, head to foot, to make shapes:
3 students form a triangle.
4 students form a square.
5 students form a pentagon.

More advanced shapes

4 students arrange themselves into a parallelogram.
10 students could form an open-space 5-pointed star.

Lesson 2. Defining geometric shapes in the air

Students clasp hands together in front of themselves either while sitting or standing.

Teacher sits or stands with her/his back facing students in front of them.

Teacher clasps hands together, and while keeping hands clasped traces a geometric shape in the air in front of and just above head height, so students can see the shape being made.

Students join in copying teacher, keeping their hands clasped, while making each shape.
