Plane Shapes and Solid Shapes
The class is introduced to plane figures and solid shapes. They learn to recognize the characteristics of two and three dimensional shapes by working with cut outs of plane shapes and by touching solid objects. They explore what it means for shapes to be congruent and what line of symmetry means.
1st - 2nd Math
Getting Into "Shape"
Here is an outstanding lesson which has learners identify plane shapes that make up geometric solids. They read a poem, try and identify shapes by reaching into a bag and feeling and describing a shape, draw plane shapes on the Imagination at Work website, take pictures of shapes found on a shape walk, and create shape snack trains.

Visualizing Plane Figures and Square Units
Introduce learners to area and square units. They look at a bird's-eye view map of a school and answer questions about different buildings' areas. They draw squares and rectangles on a piece of graph paper and find the area of the shapes. A comprehensive lesson with a great, engaging opener!

Area of Parallelograms and Triangles
Using an Excel spreadsheet, young mathematicians calculate the area of triangles and parallelograms. This is a creative way to have them practice this concept. Not only do they learn how to use Excel, they also practice calculating the area of plane figures.
Explore polygons with your elementary learners. Divide the class in 12 to configure the polygon puzzle before them. They list the attributes of each type of polygon they see, and if there's time, they jump on the interactive website Polygon Playground.
3rd - 5th Math CCSS: Designed
Plane figures have the ability to transform. They can move in three different ways. Students explore translations, rotations, and reflections as they relate to plane figures in geometry. Each student uses a digital camera to photograph 1 object, they then use their photo and PowerPoint to show how that object can be rotated and flipped.
In the "Cha Cha Slide" pupils need to slide, turn and reverse and that's exactly what this lesson is about. They will create a graphic organizer defining the terms: reflections, translations, and rotations then they will use Scott Foresman Investigations: Flip, Slides, and Area to show how plane figures move in space.
Describing and Creating Plane Figures - Grade One
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.

New Review Identify and Describe Geometric Figures
In search of a comprehensive geometry resource to supplement your elementary math instruction? Look no further. This geometry chapter, taken straight out of a math textbook, provides everything you need to begin teaching young mathematicians about the properties two- and three-dimensional shapes.
