How to Find Geometry in the Everyday World

Help your child go on a geometric shape-search with this fun printable.
on September 01, 2017

From preschool to high school, teachers cover geometry just about every year. Beginning in kindergarten, your little one will learn the names of many two- and three-dimensional shapes — but it's easy to confuse them. 

To help your child feel confident with geometry, teach the names of basic shapes from an early age. Also, work with your little one to find different shapes in everyday life. This geometry search printable will reinforce your practice. It can be filled in at home, during car trips, while waiting at a restaurant, or just about anywhere you go.
