Product information

In the “Hidden Shapes” worksheets, the student must find 5 hidden shapes and outline them. Shapes exist throughout our environment, and an ability to identify common shapes is an important skill. These worksheets reinforce the learning process by combining two senses – vision (looking for specific shapes amongst others) and touch (tracing the outline of the shapes).

This file contains 10 worksheets.

Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

Figure Ground 

Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration. 

To complete the “Hidden Shapes” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on the shapes and ignore the zigzag lines or squiggle lines

Form Constancy 

Form Constancy is the ability to recognize any given visual stimulus as the same despite changes in its presentation, such as, size, color, texture, direction, orientation or context.

In the “Hidden Shapes” worksheets, the student must find the same shapes even though they are presented in a different manner (different angles/positions, different sizes). 

Visual Motor Integration

Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.

In the “Hidden Shapes” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to trace the outline of the shapes in a fluid and controlled manner. Tracing encourages the accurate placement and movement of a pencil on a sheet of paper.
