Geoboards Teacher Resources
Find Geoboards educational ideas and activities
Middle school geometers determine the area of a shape on a geoboard or dot paper and draw figures that meet given area conditions. Working as a class, they develop and discuss various ways to draw geometric shapes with specified properties. Using the provided worksheet, they create geometric figures according to the teacher's directions.
Invite your first graders to compose and decompose two and three-dimensional figures with this fun, hands-on lesson. They investigate and predict the results of putting together and taking apart two-dimensional shapes with rubber bands and Geoboards. Through this engaging activity, they will begin to understand and identify the simple fraction of one half as they place two triangles together to make one square. To further their understanding of the basic figures within two-dimensional shapes, learners create shapes using Wikki Stixs. To complete the lesson, the class creates three-dimensional figures such as a cube with marshmallows and toothpicks. Included are extension and family connection activities. Please note that modeling and support will be needed for your youngsters to independently create shapes using hands-on materials as indicated in the lesson.
Students investigate area and perimeter using a geoboard. In this area and perimeter using a geoboard lesson, students create a geoboard on their Ti-73. Students make a 26 vertice board and construct triangles on it. Students find the area and perimeter of their construction.
Here is an outstanding lesson to help your charges identify equivalent fractions that represent one-half. Mathematicians engage in activity where they try to outsmart an alien from the planet of Fractional who is coming to their classroom to take one-half of their candy. They work with geoboards, spinner games, and role-play they are working in the customer complaint center of a ribbon factory.
Jump into equivalent fractions using these fun scenarios for mathematicians to solve. First, they use geoboards to find different ways to divide a rectangle in half. Then, an alien from the planet Fractional is after one half of their candy, but scholars trick him into taking a smaller amount using equivalent fractions. There are two more cooperative games here as well as extensions and all the materials you will need.
Tenth graders investigate area of a triangle. In this geometry lesson plan, 10th graders explore the technique of finding the area of a triangle by surrounding them with rectangles and subtracting right-triangle areas. The lesson plan uses a geoboard application in the exploration process.
First graders explore two-dimensional shapes. Individually, children follow directions to draw shapes. Learners use shaving cream, geoboards, yarn, marshmallows, and toothpicks to create shapes. As a class, 1st graders brainstorm descriptions of each shape, paying particular attention to the number of sides and angles.
First graders create two-dimensional shapes. In this shapes lesson plan, 1st graders learn about different two-dimensional shapes. Students have many hands-on experiences with these shapes including the use of geoboards, shaving cream, yarn, and drawing shapes. This lesson plan also includes an opportunity for assessment of a student's ability to follow directions.
