Learning about 2D shapes is always fun. There are so many activities that you can use to teach them. Since the cooler weather is slowly creeping upon us, I thought it would be fun to use our 2D shapes to make a scarecrow.
We’re practicing our 2D shapes, colors, counting, and fine motor skills with this free printable 2D shape scarecrow.
These resources work well with this article.
To start, have the students color the shapes on the page according to the directions.
Next, they’ll cut out all of the shapes. When they have all of the pieces cut out, they’ll need the, “My Shape Scarecrow” page. They will glue all of the pieces onto the page using the shapes to make their scarecrow.
Lastly, they will count all of the shapes they used and write them on the correct lines.
I love it when we can incorporate all different types of math into one project!

If you’re looking for more fun ways to reinforce 2D shapes, the students have fun making and wearing these 2D shape hats all over school.
These 2D shape spin and covers are a favorite during center time.
And these 2D shape bingo cards are fun as a whole class reward to practice our shapes!
I hope your students had fun making their shape scarecrows!
See you next time!
