Title: Shapes and Patterns in Industrial Arts

Compliance Standard: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M)

Subject: Industrial Arts

Summary: This engaging and interactive activity will introduce kindergarteners to shapes and patterns in the context of Industrial Arts, fostering their creativity and critical thinking skills.

Topic: Shapes and Patterns in Industrial Arts

Learning Outcomes:

  • Know different shapes and patterns commonly found in Industrial Arts
  • Understand how shapes and patterns can be used to create designs and structures
  • Create their own artwork using shapes and patterns


This activity will be conducted in a hands-on and interactive manner, allowing students to explore shapes and patterns through various art and craft activities.

Resources/Materials Required:

  • Construction paper (assorted colors)
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • Markers or crayons
  • Assorted craft materials (e.g., buttons, beads, sequins)
  • Industrial Arts-related picture books


Step 1: Introduction (Know)

Begin the activity by gathering the students in a circle and introducing the concept of shapes and patterns in Industrial Arts. Show them pictures of different objects and structures found in Industrial Arts, such as buildings, bridges, and machines. Discuss the shapes and patterns they observe.

Step 2: Exploration (Understand)

Provide each student with a piece of construction paper and encourage them to explore different shapes and patterns by cutting out shapes or creating patterns using markers or crayons. Allow them to experiment and discuss their creations with their peers.

Step 3: Artwork Creation (Can Do)

Now, guide the students in creating their own artwork using the shapes and patterns they have explored. They can cut out shapes from construction paper, glue them onto a larger piece of paper, and decorate them with craft materials. Encourage them to be creative and use different shapes and patterns to design their artwork.

Step 4: Reflection and Discussion

Once the students have completed their artwork, gather them together to reflect on their creations. Ask questions such as:

  • What shapes and patterns did you use in your artwork?
  • How did you arrange the shapes and patterns to create your design?
  • What do you like about your artwork?
  • What could you do differently next time?

Encourage students to share their thoughts and listen to their peers' responses.


To assess the students' understanding of shapes and patterns in Industrial Arts, observe their participation and engagement throughout the activity. Additionally, review their artwork and listen to their reflections during the discussion. Look for evidence of their ability to identify and use different shapes and patterns in their creations.

Remember to provide positive feedback and encourage further exploration of shapes and patterns in Industrial Arts.
