Common Core for Grade 1
Examples, solutions, videos, and songs to help Grade 1 kids learn how to distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Common Core: 1.G.1
- I can explain the difference between defining attributes (e.g., sides, angles, faces) and non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientations, overall size).
- I can construct and draw a shape when given defining attributes.
- I can sort shapes (e.g., attribute blocks, polygon figures) by shape, number of sides, size or number of angles
- I can use geoboards, toothpicks, straws, paper and pencil, computer games to build shapes that possess the defining attributes
- I can explain how two shapes are alike or how they are different from each other
Defining Attributes of Shapes - 1.G.1
This level is about identifying shapes and the defining attributes of shapes. It relates to standard 1.G.1 of the common core. Students learn about the difference between closed & open shapes, and the defining attributes of triangles, squares, rectangles & circles.
Distinguish between defining attributes versus non-defining attributes
Build and draw shapes that possess defining attributes.
Hands On with 3D Geometric Shapes
The kids had fun using toothpicks and marshmallows to make 3D shapes.
