Fidget spinners are totally the rage here! My daughter begged and begged for one and now that she has one, it goes everywhere with her. I decided to harness her
obsession love for all things ‘fidget spinner’ and create some learning activities for her. This fidget spinner 2D shape graph free printable is a great way to learn about 2D Shapes, graphing and do lots of spinning!
To use: Print the 2D Shape Spinner and Graph. (Available in color and black & white.)
Grab a fidget spinner and place a small sticker on one spoke. I recommend not using your child’s favorite fidget spinner because the sticker may damage the spinner if they try to remove it.
Have your child spin the spinner.
Then graph the picture that the sticker lands on. Continue until one of the shapes has reached the top of the graph.
Extend the activity by talking to your child about the results.
Which shape has the most? The least? Did any shapes have the same amount of spins?
What will happen if we try the activity again? Will the shapes have the same amount?
