Product Details

The Shape of the Day templates are a great addition to your maths lessons. Get students to think beyond the basic properties of 2D shapes. These templates will allow students to manipulate and identify different properties of 2D shapes.

There are so many ways you can use these templates in your classroom, such as as a pretest or summative assessment, lesson warmup, small group work, or revision.

We have made different versions to allow for differentiation in the classroom and extend learners where needed. Let students have a voice and choose which template they wish to complete.
