Plane Figure Teacher Resources
Find Plane Figure educational ideas and activities
Student use a variety of methods and tools to construct and compare the area of plane figures. They discuss how to create a plane figure and discuss examples of plane figures. Students use a graph to visualize the relationship of the side of square and the area of a square.
Examine characteristics of solid figures such as cubes, rectangular prisms, cylinders, and cones! Learners review the attributes of plane figures and apply them to similarities in solid figures. They are assessed using common items like a Tootsie Roll, a gum ball, a caramel, and a Now and Later candy for identification purposes. They can use educational software to draw the figures.
Young mathematicians draw, create, and describe different shapes using triangles. They discuss attributes of the original and created shapes. Pupils classify the created shapes and draw and write in mathematics journals to communicate what they recall. Students see the relationship between two shapes, such as how two triangles can make a square.
Fourth graders observe examples of attributes of three-dimensional figures including: vertices, edges, and faces. They then use a protractor and measure angels of figures as they are drawing to complete an activity. They use plane figures from another lesson and explain how many vertices, edgeds, and faces their shape has.
Sixth graders examine a variety of three dimensional figures to identify the vertices, edges, and faces. They use plane figures that they constructed in a previous instructional activity to make three dimensional ones in this instructional activity. They measure the angles using protractors. They complete an associated worksheet.
Eighth graders investigate the concept of the application of finding the area of different plane shapes. Using different measurements comparisons and contrasts are made to illustrate the concept. The students use the correct formulas to correspond with the figure being used.
