Tracing hexagon shapes is very effective at helping students remember this shape, as the activity engages the student's senses of sight and touch. They can say the name of the shape out loud as they trace it to connect the name to the shape itself.
Students can trace the shape of the hexagon with their finger until they are fully familiar with the shape. They should then trace the shape with their pencil while repeating its name. This helps students remember the name of the shape and its appearance.
Tracing shapes helps students to visually identify them, and it is a very important visual discrimination activity. Tracing also helps students to become comfortable with the design of the hexagon and to gain confidence remembering and drawing the shape.
