Upon completion of this online math lesson, your students will have improved their skills and increased their confidence in identifying flat shapes.
Questions in this first-grade math game are presented in a variety of formats, including fill-in-the-blank, drag-and-drop, and multiple choice.

They will be shown a relevant pictorial clue that will point them to the correct answer. When students answer incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear to show the right answer. If applicable, a step-by-step tutorial will show them how to achieve the correct answer. Students move through the lesson having learned from past mistakes.
