Math Shapes with iPad - 2nd - Tri Quad Pent Hex Cube

Math Shapes with iPad - 2nd - Tri Quad Pent Hex Cube

Overview

This lesson is focused toward 2nd Grade Math - Shapes - using iPad App Keynote. It includes triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. 

  • Time frame - 2 hours - can be expanded or reduced, taught and explored over 4 or 5 short lessons
  • Format - Planned for face to face - adaptable to virtual environment - Math Talk would need to be face to face or a syncronous lesson
  • iPad App Needed:  Keynote

Summary

  • To teach this lesson, you will need an understanding of using Keynote on the iPad. You and students will need to know how to do the following:
    • Keynote for iPad: Photos
    • Keynote for iPad: Shapes
    • Keynote for iPad: Drawing
  • If teacher needs to learn and teach students Keynote and Drawing Tools:
    https://appleteacher.apple.com/#/home/resources
    The Apple Teacher Learning Center is now fully open without needing an Apple ID to access the learning objectives, so both teachers and students can access these resources:
     
    Start at The Apple Teacher Learning Center> then
    Foundational Skills> then
    iPad and Mac Foundations> then
    iPad (tab choice) see iPad Foundations

     

    Under the heading “Learn Skills.” Choose: Keynote for iPad, then
    Keynote for iPad: Photos
    Keynote for iPad: Shapes
    Keynote for iPad: Drawing

    Strand: GEOMETRY (2.G) Reason with shapes and their attributes (Standards 2.G.1–3).

    Standard 2.G.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

    Objective: I CAN IDENTIFY TRIANGLES, QUADRILATERALS, PENTAGONS, HEXAGONS, AND CUBES.

     

    Students will know

  • the definition of the following shapes: triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
  • how to identify by seeing, describing, and drawing - a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube.
  •  

    Students will be able to

  • identify a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube in their environment.
  • Use Keynote and iPad draw tools to draw a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube.
  • Use Keynote and iPad shape tools to insert a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube into a slide.
  • Use the iPad camera to take a picture of a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube in their environment.
  •

    Differentiation: The class will participate in various talks that will elicit prior knowledge, identify understanding, and clarify misconceptions.

     

    Shape Terms: standard math names for two- and three-dimensional objects, such as triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube

    Dimensional adjectives: words describing size of objects, people, and spaces, such as big, little, long, short, tall, tiny, huge

    Spatial features terms: words describing properties of two- and three-dimensional objects such as side, angle, edge, corner (vertex, plural vertices), face, flat, straight.

    Partner Math Talk - Think-Pair-Share

    MATH Strategy: Each student considers on their own, then discusses their thoughts with a partner. Purpose: Encourage students to think about a question, issue, or reading, and then refine their understanding through discussion with a partner.

    Source:  https://oame.on.ca/main/files/thinklit/ThinkPairShare.pdf

         Explain how you can know a triangle is a triangle.
         Compare two shapes and say how they are different.

    Show students how to draw a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, and cube. Practice on whiteboard or scrap paper.
     

    Extra: Higher level Differentiation Idea - could be done as a class:

    Taking wholes apart, putting parts together
    Discovering shape and space
