2nd Grade • Half Day Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Description

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Geometry: attributes of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. Students will learn key geometry vocabulary, complete interactive math notes, participate in both guided and independent practice, enjoy a read aloud, and create a picture created from only shapes (composite shapes).

  • Segment 1: students will identify attributes of two-dimensional shapes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided).
  • Segment 2: students will identify defining attributes of three-dimensional solid shapes (e.g.; cubes are three-dimensional solids, with six faces, twelve edges, and eight vertices).
  • Segment 3: students will distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes (e.g.; color, orientation, overall size) of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. They will also build and draw shapes with defining attributes to create composite shapes.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
