Shape People

Make a shape person with triangles, circles or squares. Choose which shape you want to target. Then print out the corresponding shape page (below). Using construction paper, cut out a large shape for the body and a small shape for the head. Bend long strips of construction paper back and forth (accordion style) for the arms and legs. Have your child assemble their shape person. Then have them cut and paste the shapes from the print out on the body of the shape person. Be sure to talk to your child about the attributes of the shape. For example, "a triangle has three sides and three corners".
