# Playlists: Geometry

## K.G.1-K.G.3

Identify And Describe Shapes (Squares, Circles, Triangles, Rectangles, Hexagons, Cubes, Cones, Cylinders, And Spheres).

K.G.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
K.G.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
K.G.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three- dimensional (“solid”).

### What Shape Is It?

These games have students identify 2-D shapes:I Spy Shapes: Students find all the shapes (circles, triangles, squares) “hidden” in the pictures. (audio instructions available) Purpy’s Shapes (Sheppard Software): Students go through several activities in which they identify the following s...

## K.G.4-K.G.5

Analyze, Compare, Create, And Compose Shapes.

K.G.4 Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
K.G.5 Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
K.G.6 Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”

### Analyzing Shapes

The following three activities will help your students analyze and compare 2-D and 3-D shapes: Circle to Sphere (PBS):  Have students go through first 4 steps: (audio instructions available) Steps 1 and 2 (Look and See) feature animations that show 2 dimensional shapes (circles, squar...
