Triangles of the Sun

Triangles of the Sun Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet displays an illustration of a circular shape surrounded by multiple triangular protrusions, creating a design similar to a sun. The task, as stated at the top of the page, is for the student to “Count the Number of Triangles in the Picture Below & Color Them.” This encourages the child to engage with the image by identifying all the triangle shapes around the circle and applying color to these areas. The exercise combines elements of counting, shape recognition, and coloring to provide a multifaceted learning experience.

The worksheet’s purpose is to teach students to identify the shape of a triangle and to reinforce counting skills by tallying the number of triangles in the image. It also aims to enhance the students’ fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through the coloring activity. By integrating counting with shape recognition, the worksheet helps to lay a foundation for mathematical and geometric understanding in a playful and interactive manner. The act of coloring further solidifies the learning experience by allowing students to physically mark the shapes they have counted.
