The kindergarten students were introduced to the shape monster when he came into their classroom and mixed up all of their math toys. They had to sort the toys (small plastic animals, wooden blocks, and plastic shapes) by size, shape, and color to organize them again. Each student had a different idea of what the shape monster looked like, so we decided to make him in art. Each student picked a color and shape for their body. Then added a face, arms, legs, and whatever else they imagined with colorful paper.
