A set of dominoes to help students with their understanding of 2-D shapes.
This teaching resource allows students to explore 2-D shapes.
This activity is great to use in your math centers. Simply print the dominoes on cardstock for added durability.
Shapes include polygons with 12 or fewer sides. We have provided blank dominoes so that you and your students can create dominoes for shapes such as trapezoid and rhombus.
There are two versions of this resource. One uses the term ‘corners’ and the other uses the term ‘vertices’. Versions are indicated in the drop down menu.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
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.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangl...
