Subject Mathematics
Grade 1
Students` Learning Outcomes
 Recognize and match objects, from daily life of similar shape.
 Identify the following basic shapes: as;
 Rectangle, square, circle, oval, and triangle
 Identify the basic shapes from real life objects
 Match similar basic shapes
Information for Teachers
 Geometry is a kind of mathematics that studies the size, shapes, and positions of things. There are flat shapes and solid shapes in geometry, squares, circles and triangles are some of the simplest shapes.
 Geometry can help people find: as;
 The surface area of a house, so they can buy the right amount of paint
 The volume of box, to see if it is big enough to hold a liter of food
 The area of the form, so it can be divided into equal parts
 While teaching the lesson, the teacher should also consult textbook at all steps wherein and whenever it is applicable.
Material / Resources
Writing board, chalk/marker, cutouts of shapes (square, triangle, and circle) in different colors and size, poster of shapes house
Introduction
 Tell the students that shapes are the outer form or appearance of something. Ask them find some similar shapes from their classroom.
 Make a circle with their hand and ask /tell them that this is a circle.
 Ask students to make the shape using their hands too
 Ask them to find other objects in the class that ar circles. Such as sharpeners, watch dial, hair clips
 Brainstorm on other things that are shaped like a circle
 Then make a square with your hand and ask students to do the same
 Again ask them to look for more objects of that shape in the classroom
Activity 1

Activity 2

Activity 3 Hang the shape house poster in front of class or draw the following sketch on the board. 
Activity 4

Sum up / Conclusion
 Square, rectangle, triangle, circle and oval are basic shapes.
Assessment
 Draw square, circle, rectangle, on the board and ask different students to identify
 Make the shapes using your hands and ask students to guess.
 Teacher is also required to involve the students in solving the problems given in the exercise at the end of unit/chapter.
Follow up Tasks
 Ask the students to: as;
 Identify the shapes of different objects as square, circle, rectangle, triangle and oval at their homes.
 Draw a car or house using basic shapes.
