Directions:

Print the Block Shadows task cards on cardstock. Laminate and cut them apart. Have your child place the blocks on the shadows. Some are harder and will require a little more thought as they fill up the inside of the shadow. When finished, place in a Ziploc bag for later use.

Questions to ask your child after they are finished:

  • How many blocks did it take to fill the shadow? (area)
  • Can you count the edges of the blocks? (perimeter)
  • Can you make the shape next to the card? (visual discrimination)
