The hunt is on! Send young mathematicians on a search for shapes in the first lesson of this two-part series.

Perform this activity in the classroom, on the playground, or in any other available open space around the school. A fun whole-group lesson that supports children with becoming comfortable recognizing common geometric shapes.
