EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students use the informal language of their everyday world to name and describe flat shapes without yet using mathematical concepts and the vocabulary of geometry. First, they describe different shapes. Then they play a game of Shape Detectives where students search for shapes around the classroom and draw them on paper. Finally, students share their findings with the class.
