Reflections: Balancing Line, Shape, and Color
Fifth graders study repeated lines and colors as they create lines of symmetry. In this math and visual arts lesson, 5th graders examine works of art by Michael Gregory and Martin Puryear to look for colors, lines, and shapes. They use a variety of color palettes in the polygons they draw with water soluble pencils as they show reflection in their artwork.
Fourth graders investigate the concept of geometric patterning. They create their own patterns with a few basic requirements. The patterns must illustrate the concepts of flipping, 90 and 180 degree rotations. The collages also consist of an overlap combination of colors.
Using Algebra to Explore Problem Space
Students apply their knowledge of math by rewriting word problems using equations. In this word problem lesson plan, students build upon previous knowledge as they set up the correct steps to solve word problems. This lesson plan is full of hints for teachers to teach math better.

Two-Dimensional Views of Solid Figures - Reteach 21.2
Fifth and sixth graders review three steps to help them draw two dimensional views of solid figures. They practice by drawing the top, front, and side view for the figures of stacked cubes, pyramid, and cylinder. Learners review two steps to draw a solid and then select a cross section for the pyramid shape for the choices of a square, circle, and triangle.
5th - 6th Math
Symmetry - Reteach 15.3
Have your learners experiment with symmetry with this activity. Class members trace and cut out 3 different figures and draw all of the lines of symmetry for each figure. After they have investigated these shapes, they examine 3 more figures to determine whether each has rotational symmetry.
4th - 8th Math
For this transformations worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 27 various types of problems that include similar figures and justifying answers. First, they dilate the shape shown using a zoom factor from the origin. Then, students solve for the unknown variable in each similar figure.
