Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Plane Shapes topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Square Dance

Have your child dance in shapes. Together make up a dance routine where you and your child dance in squares, circles, triangles, and rectangles. Set your routine to music and perform it in front of other family members. Have family members guess what shape is being made.

Shape Cookies

Make shape cookies with your child. You can find a recipe for sugar or butter cookies on line. Then together with your child, roll out dough into different shapes. You may want to use a cookie cutter to make shapes or you can use your hands. Bake the cookies and have your child decorate each one. Share the cookies with friends and family members and have your child describe each shape.

Shape Town

Make a town using different shapes. Find objects around the house like shoeboxes, jewelry, and notepads to create a model of a town. Have your child describe what is in the town and what each shape represents in the town. For example, a shoebox can be an office building and a saucer can be a lake.
