clipart-letters-free-nTBGR7GTAWe are going to look at capital letters, not for writing or spelling, but as shapes with different features…what makes them look the same?

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Some letters have horizontal lines or lines that go from left to right lines, some have vertical lines or lines that go up and down and some have both! Some letters enclose a space and others do not. Some can be drawn without taking your pencil off the paper or going over the same line more than once, others can’t.

For this challenge, find sets of letters that go together because they share the same features.

Here are some letter shapes that go together in a set:

What properties do they share? What other letters could go with them? When you add more letters do the features change?

Challenge yourself to create your own set of letters. What similar features do they share? Now challenge a friend the same way you challenged yourself! Post your challenge below!
