2D and 3D Shapes OER

This is a curated a list of Open Educational Resources on the topic of 2D and 3D shapes that could be used with 1st grade students.

Identifying Vertices, Edges, and Faces in 3D Shapes | OER Commons

This is a short video in which you will learn how to identify what sides, vertices, and faces are in regards to various 3D shapes and how to correctly count them.

Identifying Vertices, Edges, and Faces in 3D Shapes | OER Commons

This is a quiz in which you will view various 3D shapes and practice counting the number of sides, faces, and vertices.

Cousin Fal's shape collection

This is a lesson from Khan Academy where you will learn how to identify and sort shapes based on their number of sides, corners, and the length of the sides..

Composing shapes

In this lesson from Khan Academy you will learn how to combine 2D shapes to make other 2D shapes.

Recognizing shapes

In this lesson from Khan Academy you will learn how to identify circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses, and trapezoids. You can also take a short quiz for practice at the end of the lesson.

Teacher Tipster (3D Shapes Song)

This video is for teachers from www.teachertipster.com. In this video Teacher Tipster will teach you a song that you can use to teach your students the names of all the 3D shapes.

Math Game - Matching Shapes

This timed matching game allows students to learn all the common polygons by matching the shape with it's name. This is good practice for naming 2D shapes.

Get the most out of your smart board.

This interactive whiteboard lets you view 3D shapes that can be rotated and transparency can be turned on or off. You can also zoom in on the shape, color the faces to help with counting, and click to count the edges as it keeps track for you on the screen.

Shapes Jeopardy Game

This is a 2D shape Jeopardy game that would be good to use as review with students at the end of the 2D/3D shape unit. The game allows for 1-4 players.

Naming Shapes | OER Commons

This interactive page allows students to practice identifying 2D shapes as well as see how multiple shapes can be used to create another 2D shape. There are also questions about the interactive picture that can be answered for additional practice.

polygon | OER Commons

This resource allows you to view various 2D shapes, resize them, and move them. You can change the n value to change the number of sides or vertices in order to view and manipulate any 2D shape you like.
