Lesson 11

Las mismas figuras

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to identify shapes that are the same, regardless of orientation.

Lesson Narrative

In a previous section, students identified and named shapes in the environment, including shapes in different orientations. In this lesson, students use pattern blocks to figure out which shapes are the same. Students may analyze the attributes of the shapes or may rotate the pattern blocks to determine which shapes are the same.
