Penguin Shape Sorting Activity

Adding to the Shape Sorting Puzzle Activity of my store, today I have created this Penguin Shapes Sorting just like my previous Frog, Chicken, Reindeer and Snowman Shapes Sorting activities.

On the theme of Penguins, kids gonna surely love making them in different shapes.

What it consists?

So, I have made 11 different shapes using Penguin here, viz.:

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Oval
  • Triangle
  • Diamond
  • Pentagon
  • Hexagon
  • Trapezoid / Trapezium
  • Star
  • Heart
  • Circle

Here’s a snapshot of how the Activity actually looks like.

7 Activities Included:

>> Cut & Paste of all Shapes’ Reindeers

>> Trace and Color

>> Clip Cards

>> Posters

>> Shape Crafts (Make your own Penguins)

>> Count the corners and sides of each shape


First of all make sure you have software to open a pdf file in your system and download this Activity sheet here.

Step 1 – Get it printed. Would be great if you can get a color prints of it.

Step 2 – Lamination is preferable for its durability. (In case if you want to re-use the pieces)

Step 3 – As directed in the sheets, you can make the kids do different activities one at a time.

How to do?

Activity 1

  • The cut outs which are to be cut are given in the bottom half of the second sheet. Give the cut outs and the first half of the sheet to the students. [Laminate the sheet to improve its durability.]
  • Students will have to match and paste each Penguin to its corresponding figure to complete the figure. [In case the sheet is laminated you can use velcro dots].
  • The name of every shape is also written in capitals below it.

Activity 2

  • Trace the shapes – improves fine motor skills & finger movements
  • Color the shapes as given – improves reading & fine motor skills

Activity 3

  • Cut out the individual Clip Cards
  • Lamination is optional
  • Ask kids to identify the Shape of the Penguin shown on the card and Clip the right Shape

Activity 4

  • Use the Posters to hand around on the Activity Boards or make & give it away as a booklet.

Activity 5

  • Using the color & B&W cutouts, make your own Shape Penguins.
