The shape mystery bag game is great for teaching geometry while having lots of fun.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 05, 2013
The mystery bag is a wonderful way to teach spacial awareness through sensory play and tactile exploration. It also introduces basic geometry and measurement concepts.
Playing the game with the preschooler is simple. Materials needed are a small bag and some different size building blocks. Begin the game by showing the child all the blocks. After examination, place all blocks back inside the bag. Let the child take turns in choosing special blocks by placing the hand inside the bag without letting them peak inside.
Variations of the game can be played by asking the child to pick a random piece and letting them guess the shape while their eyes are still closed.
Another great geometry teaching game idea can be played with equilateral triangles. Either purchase these triangles or make DIY equilaterals by simply laminating cardboard triangles. Invite the child to the table to explain the shapes. Let him or her discover and create shapes according to the template provided on Kids Activities Blog.
