This learning activity enables children to develop their understanding of 2D shapes and their properties. Children are encouraged to go on a shape hunt around the learning environment (indoors or outdoors) looking for shapes. Children will draw the shape they have found, identify the shape and their properties. Children can cut out the shapes on page 6 to support their shape hunt. They can place the cut-out shapes on top of objects they find around the learning environment.
