We devised this activity to go one step further in our knowledge of shape and when using word searches. Rather than give the children the words to find - as in a normal a normal word search, we wanted the focus to be on maths. Therefore, when completing this activity, the children receive 19 knowledge based questions about 2D shapes (including quadrilaterals, triangles, circles and their properties, as well as other polygons). The answers to the questions will lead the children to finding the words in the word search.
This activity has proven to be very successful to reinforce learning, revise 2D shape knowledge, use alongside the 2D loop game, as a maths centre activity, and also for a homework activity too. The uses for this activity are immense - the one thing in common - it has made reviewing and embedding 2D shapes fun for the children, with a slight competitive edge.
Ideal for 4th and 5th graders who are focusing on their knowledge of shape.
