Overview: Lesson that explores 2-D shapes and 3-D figures in geometry through drama.
Content Areas: Math and Theatre
Grade Level: K-2
In celebration of my book, No Permission Required, we’re highlighting one of the 14 lesson plans and assessments that are in the book. In this K-2 lesson, we’re focused on teaching math through drama by creating characters out of 2-D and 3-D shapes. Additionally, you’ll find an assessment rubric that you can use for the Geometric Shape Drama assessment featured at the end of the lesson. Please keep in mind that this is a lesson seed, whereas in the book, the lesson is fully-developed into a complete lesson plan. Enjoy this lesson!
