- Choose a different coloured paper for each geometric shape.
- Use the tracers to draw 3 or 4 shapes on the paper.
- Use the same colour of marker as the paper when you trace your shapes. For example, use a red marker to trace circles on red paper.
- Cut out all the shapes.
Hint: Cut a frame about 1 cm (1/2") around each shape before cutting on the lines. This makes it easier to hold and cut.
