We're going on a shape hunt, we're going to catch a round one! In this video, students demonstrate their knowledge of shapes by answering clues. Students also practice positioning words, such as above and between. Learning to follow precise instructions and eliminate options are excellent math skills to practice. And it's much more fun with a detective hat and a magnifying glass...
