    Weekly Project Challenges - Geometry


    Point out two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes and name them. You can find them in picture books and in real life.


    Make a shape scavenger hunt by drawing several shapes on a piece of paper for your child, then looking for the shapes in your home or on a walk through the neighborhood.

    Early Elementary:

    List every shape your child can think of on a piece of paper. As you walk through the neighborhood or inside your home, look for the shapes together and find new shapes to add.

    Older Elementary:

    Make a shape field guide. As you take a walk together or explore your home, have your child use a pencil and paper, camera, tablet, or phone to record each shape found, the type of object, and where they found it.

    Middle School:

    All three-dimensional shapes start with two-dimensional shapes. Use spare paper or cardboard to cut out squares and triangles of equal size. How many squares do you need to build a cube? How many triangles to build a pyramid? How many triangles to build a second cube?

    High School:

    Architects and engineers use shapes to create structures. Use spare paper or cardboard to cut out small two-dimensional shapes including squares, rectangles, and triangles. Use the shapes tobuild a small model of a famous building, like the Empire State Building or Eiffel Tower. What three-dimensional shapes make up your building?
