Lesson 2: Shape 2: Geometry

Taking a simple drinks can, children learn to first study an object to identify the simple geometric shapes it's made up of, before sketching out the details using light guidelines

Learning Objectives

  • Knowing that the points, lines, shapes and space that make up simple 2D and 3D shapes are known as ‘geometry'

  • Seeing basic geometrical shapes ( such as circles and squares) when I draw objects

  • Using these shapes to help me draw, design and decorate more accurately

  • Using guidelines to help set out and construct more complicated images from observation
