Learning shapes isn’t just about teaching your child how to draw a circle or square.
When we look closely enough, we may recognize just how many shapes occur naturally in the world around us.
Not just in math, but in also reading, science, and art. For a young preschooler, learning shapes can be incredibly helpful in offering an early step in understanding how shapes and numbers relate to one another.
To tie this in with our rocket theme, students used shapes to construct rockets! They were first presented with craft sticks and a diagram of a rocket made out of construction paper.
Following this, they were asked to match the sticks to the corresponding color on the page. Lastly, they were told to put these sticks together into the shape of a rocket!
