This large and small group activity helps make students aware of basic shapes in their everyday environment and how these shapes make up objects in their surroundings. Students will hear a story and view shapes in its illustrations. Then, in small groups with the teacher, they will be invited to search for specific shapes in their classroom and school environment and tally how many of each they find. Students will be given the opportunity to tally independently, moving at their own pace. Then, with their group, they will count the total number of each type of shape they identified.
