We have been talking about shapes in math lately, and I thought I would pass along a little favorite friend of ours: the "trapezoid dawg." This video is narrated by second grade students, so some of the terms are a little over my first graders' heads. Nevertheless, what they do understand is the way shapes are brought to life in this little demonstration.
We even took time to create our own "trapezoid dawgs" and shape scenes. They really embraced this little activity. Here are some of our "trapezoid dawg" art samples.
