Title: Am I a Circle, Square, Triangle, or Rectangle?
Description:
This is a lesson plan for teaching students to identify circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles and
to be able to talk about shapes.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 17: Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to. [KG1] [MA2013] (0) 18: Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [KG2]

Title: Education World  Circles, Squares, Triangles and Rectangles
Description:
This web site contains a variety of activities for teaching students about shapes.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 17: Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to. [KG1] [MA2013] (0) 18: Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [KG2] [MA2013] (1) 19: Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and threesided) versus nondefining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.

Title: Math Makes a Connection: Patterns with Polygons
Description:
In this interactive website, students use polygons to construct tessellations.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 18: Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [KG2] [MA2013] (0) 22: Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. [KG6] [MA2013] (1) 20: Compose twodimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, halfcircles, and quartercircles) or threedimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape. (Students do not need to learn formal names such as "right rectangular prism.") [1G2] [MA2013] (2) 24: Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. [2G1]
