Robot Shape Guess Counting Game

This is a fantastic game, review or warm up activity I use with children ages 4-7. If there are parents in the room try a Students vs Parents battle. The students usually win.

Show the children the robot picture for 2 seconds and ask how many circles, squares, triangles or stars they saw! Print the preview and try it for yourself. Deceptively challenging yet fun.
