Journals for:
  Describe the Shape
  Line Symmetry
These lessons are designed to guide young children through an introduction to geometry. Children will learn to recognize shapes and to create patterns, and will explore spatial relations and symmetry.

Each activity is aligned to the NCTM Standards, Grades K-2: Geometry and to the Philadelphia Mathematics Content Standards #1.2, 4.1, and 9.

Each of the lessons has been designed to include four types of activities:
  1. interactive, manipulative-based projects
  2. technology
  3. paper/pencil practice
  4. literature connections
