Lesson objective: Compose two-dimensional shapes by drawing them to represent real-world objects.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of two-dimensional shapes to a real life situation. Students are asked to draw a house using at least five different shapes and labeling them to showing understanding of how to compose two-dimensional shapes.

Key Concept students will use:

• draw shapes to model shapes in the environment.

Skills students will use:

• prior knowledge of 2D shape attributes (Grade K, Unit 8)
• prior knowledge of builiding 2D shapes (Grade K, Unit 11)

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (Model with Mathematics) as they draw two-dimensional shapes to represent different parts of a house.

Key vocabulary:

• circle
• hexagon
• octagon
• oval
• pentagon
• rectangle
• rhombus
• square
• trapezoid

Special materials needed:

• pattern blocks (optional)
