We currently have this lesson plan on Shapes and Objects in Japan on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Montessori plan (link in navigation).

Understanding shapes and objects is important for young children as it helps them develop their spatial awareness, problem-solving skills, and cognitive abilities. It also lays the foundation for future learning in math and science. Preschool learning environments that could be created to teach shapes and objects could include hands-on activities such as building with blocks, sorting and classifying objects, and creating patterns. Teachers could also incorporate technology such as interactive whiteboards or educational apps to engage children in learning. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include a shape scavenger hunt where children search for shapes in their environment, a shape sorting activity where children sort objects by shape, and a shape art project where children create a collage using different shapes. Teachers could also incorporate literature and storytelling to teach children about shapes and objects in a fun and engaging way
