A new collage activity reinforces the Toddler 2 students’ knowledge of three basic geometric shapes: the circle, the square and the triangle.  First, the child takes a piece of construction paper displaying outlines of the three shapes.  Next, he or she sorts through a bowl of assorted shapes and decides where they belong on the collage. Then, the child glues the small shapes to the corresponding larger shapes, matching circle to circle, triangle to triangle, and square to square.  This activity appeals to the students’ strong sense of order and also solidifies their ability to recognize and sort these two-dimensional shapes.  While the basic structure of the activity stays the same, each child uses this work in a unique way:  Some children carefully place one small shape on each larger one, while others fill the paper with as many shapes as they can possibly fit!
