What is it?

This is a useful resource containing templates of 2D minibeasts and coloured shapes to match against the pictures.

How can it be used?

A fun activity in maths, science and art design. It can help to build pupils' confidence in recognising different shapes while also familiarising them with different minibeasts and ways of identifying them.

Classroom ideas

These resources can be printed out and laminated before use in class. The activity could be arranged into an exciting team game by dividing the class into groups and seeing which group can match up all the shapes to their picture in the fastest time. Once all the pictures are completed and all the shapes have been identified, they can be hung up for display in the classroom as a reminder of the lesson throughout the year.
