This is a fun and simple ferris wheel worksheet that children can use to practice their shapes. If you use the colour version of the template children can choose to match the colours as well as the shapes!
This cute activity is also a great way to practice scissor skills, especially with the simpler shapes. Young children may need a bit of help cutting out the more challenging shapes (eg. heart and star).
As an aside, this is also a good primer for drawing pictures. Seeing the "simple shapes" in a picture is the first step to becoming a budding artist!
- printer and paper
- Optional: Something to color with
- Print out the template of your choice -- you need two templates for the activity. The one with the shapes and the one with the ferris wheel. You can mix and match the black and white and colour images if you like.
- Cut out the images from the shapes template.
- Match up the shapes on the ferris wheel templates and glue them on. (The cut out shapes will be slightly larger than the dotted shapes on the ferris wheel to make them slightly easier to handle.)
- Let the glue dry.
- Color the image (if you would like to).
Printing the Template:
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
