# Shapes Everywhere: Learning about Circles, Squares, Triangles, and Rectangles

## Introduction to shapes:

Teaching shapes to children can be a fun and interactive experience, especially when you bring real-life examples into the lesson. In this blog post, we will go over a simple lesson plan that introduces students to four basic shapes: circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles. This plan is perfect for kids who are just starting to learn about shapes, or for teachers who want to reinforce their students’ understanding of these shapes.

### Step 1: Preparation

Ask students to take out their stationery and books.

Ask them to match all the objects whose shape is similar.

Take a round and see if students are matching similar objects.

### Step 2: Introduction to Circles

Ask: “”Can you think of other objects that are similar in shape? Like sun and moon have similar shapes, right?””

Paste a circle on the board using tape.

Point to the circle and ask: “”Which shape is it?””

Ask: “”Can you name a few things that look like a circle?””

Write down the answers on the board next to the shape.

Say: “”So there are many circles around us, for example, tires of a car, basketball, balloons, and many more.””

### Step 3: Introduction to Squares

Paste a square on the board using tape.

Point to the square and ask: “”Which shape is it?””

Ask: “”Can you name some of the things that exist around us in the form of squares?””

Write down the answers on the board next to the shape.

### Step 4: Introduction to Triangles

Paste a triangle on the board using tape.

Point to the triangle and ask: “”Which shape is it?””

Ask: “”Can you name a few things that look like a triangle?””

Write down the answers on the board next to the shape.

### Step 5: Introduction to Rectangles

Paste a rectangle on the board using tape.

Point to the rectangle and ask: “”Which shape is it?””

Ask: “”Can you name a few things that look like a rectangle?””

Write down the answers on the board next to the shape.

Say: “”There are many rectangles around us, like this board or the door of the classroom or your textbooks and notebooks.””

## Conclusion on shapes:

In conclusion, this simple lesson plan is a fun and interactive way for students to learn about shapes. By bringing real-life examples into the lesson, students will be able to relate to the shapes they are learning and understand the importance of recognizing and identifying shapes in their daily lives.
