Kindergarten students will change the size of, and then combine simple shapes in order to create larger or smaller new shapes.

1. Combine a larger triangle with a smaller triangle to create a rhombus. You can choose which shape to either make smaller or bigger that way the two shapes match up to create a rhombus. You will know you have created a rhombus when you match up points A with G and points B with F and then all four sides of the rhombus have the same length when the two triangles are combined.
2. Combine a larger triangle with a smaller triangle to create a square. Again, you can choose which shape to either make smaller or bigger that way the two shapes match up to create a rectangle. You will know you have created a square when you match up points O with L and points Q with N and if all four sides of the square have the same length when the two triangles are combined.
3. Combine a larger semi circle with a smaller semi circle to create a circle. Again, you can choose which shape to either make smaller or bigger that way the two shapes match up to create a circle. You will know you have created a circle when you match up points J with I and points K with H and both semi circles have the same number on the outside of them.
