How to Play

This is a great activity to reinforce shape names and their associated features.  Give children a list of shapes to find (make this easier or harder, depending on the child’s ability) and then go out for a walk.  Each time the child spots a shape get them to photograph it. What is the most common shape they find?  Which is the least common?  You could adapt this activity to fit in with other school topics such as letters, numbers, animal groups (e.g. mammals), or the food chain (producer, consumer, etc.).
