Real life examples of 2D shapes

Real life examples of 2D shapes

We did this a few months ago but I wanted to share so others could use it to target our Common Core Standards. This was a great class project, we did one shape a day. I made a large shape and the students were given their own magazines. The students were challenged to find a real life example of that shape in the magazine. They had so much fun, and through a lot of trial and error got to be very good at it. We talked a lot about the characteristics of each shape as well. I now have these displayed in my classroom as a reference for my students to look at throughout the year!
