This Storytime STEM-Pack includes all the materials you need to engage children in a mathematics activity that addresses geometry concepts, in particular attributes of shapes. The activity is launched by reading the popular children’s book Square, followed by the children sorting shapes and describing their attributes. The children then work in small groups to sculpt their own shapes using clay and straws. The activity concludes with children sharing their shapes with the whole group. Included in this set, you'll find:
- Detailed instructions (i.e., lesson plan) for the learning activities
- 12 color sheets of a variety of shapes
- A copy of Square by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen
The entire activity takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. This STEM-Pack is suitable for grades K-1.
