If you’re looking for shape activities to use with your students, then you’ve landed in the right spot. I’ve been sharing loads of them lately, and you can find them in the links at the bottom of this post.
Today I’m sharing a set of games that students can play all on their own. You’ll get three games in the download!
2D and 3D Shape Games
Let’s start with the 3D shape game first, which my first grader played.
If you’ve seen some of the games in our Print and Play series, you’re familiar with the layout of this game.
Simply have your student put a playing piece anywhere on the border of the game. Then have him roll a die and move along the board.
When he lands on a picture, he identifies its 3D shape and then dots the corresponding shape on the board using a Do-a-Dot marker. If you prefer not to use Do-a-Dot markers, your students can color the shapes or use a small manipulative to cover them.
When your child has five shapes in a row, the game is over.
If you’d like, have students work as partners. They can work together to get a Bingo and check each other’s work as they go.
You’ll also find two games for identifying 2D shapes in the download. My preschooler played one of them.
We hope you enjoy this freebie!
Wow – so many more shape printables – all free!
