Shape Hunt

Shape Hunt

In Shape Hunt, two children are trying to find different shapes—circle, square, triangles—but keep seeing other shapes like hexagons, rectangles, and rhombuses. This book focuses on the attributes of shapes that make them different such as the number of sides, the number of corners, whether the sides are curved or straight, and whether the sides are parallel or intersect. Noticing attributes is an important part of mathematics. You can help your child notice the attributes of shapes by asking questions like: “How is a triangle different from a rectangle?”
