A scavenger hunt where students search for 2D shapes in their surrounding environment.
Students look for the various shapes in their surrounding environment, whether that be in their classroom, backyard or entire house.

This can also be a fun learning from home activity. Engage older children by tasking them with recording the name of the object and its location for each shape they find.
