Describing and Constructing Plane Figures
Students explore plane figures. In this math lesson, students describe and construct plane figures as described. Students draw everyday objects and identify the plane figures in each.
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.
The Plane! The Plane!
Fifth graders work with polygons.
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.
Geometry Level 3
What a wonderful resource! Learners create two-dimensional shapes according to the instructions stated, use the squares to make a triangular prism, a cube, and a pyramid, and identify features of plane shapes, among a myriad of other activities.
Identify Plane Shapes and Solid Shapes
First graders explore geometric shapes. In this plane and solid shapes instructional activity, 1st graders explore visual examples of plane shapes and solids. Students also practice solving problems that their instructors model.
Identifying Solid Figures
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.
Geometry of Shape and Size
Students define the different formulas to solve the area of a polygon. In this area lesson, students find the area of rectangles, squares, parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids and circles. They calculate the area of plane figures given the side or height of the shape.
Solid Shapes and Plane Shapes
In this solid and plane shapes worksheet, 2nd graders look at 5 different shapes and circle the solid shape object or item on the right of each shape that could be used to draw the given shape shown.
Combine Plane Shapes
In this plane shapes matching worksheet, students examine the shapes in 3 rows and identify the blocks they would use to build a similar shape.
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. Students see the relationship between two shapes, such as how two triangles can make a square.
Geometric Scavenger Hunt
After reviewing plane shapes, solid shapes, and their properties students pair up and go on a geometric scavenger hunt. This lesson includes essential questions, discussion procedure, worksheets, and an enrichment activity.
Plane Shapes on Solid Shapes
Plane shapes from solid shapes? Guide your mathematicians to discovery in this tracing activity, during which they find plane shapes from the faces of solid objects. The 4 objects include a party hat, cereal box, pyramid, and can. The assignment instructs students to trace these items, so consider having them available for a tangible aspect. A sixth question challenges scholars to consider why a ball can't be traced.
In this plane figures worksheet, students answer questions about the plane figures and their sides and corners. Students draw pictures to help them answer the six problems.
Making Plane Figures
In this plane figures learning exercise, students color the circles blue, the triangles orange, and the rectangles red. Students then count the shapes and write how many in the blanks. Students then color the triangles purple, the circles red, and the squares green and write their number counts on the lines. Students finish by finding the plane figure for a cone.
Plane Shapes and Solid Figures
In this math worksheet, learners study the properties of plane shapes and solid figures. Students fill out a chart after they have calculated the number of flat surfaces, edges and vertices.
In this plane figures activity, students name each of 7 plane figures. Students then tell the number of sides and the number of corners each polygon has.
Classify Plane Figures - Practice 15.2
Upper graders determine if four figures are polygons and write the names. They also answer three short answer questions about the angles and vertices of six plane figures.
Geometry Skills: Solid and Plane Figures
In this geometry skills worksheet, students respond to 4 questions that require them to examine geometric figures and change them to solid figures and plane figures.
Classify Plane Figures - Homework 15.2
In this plane figures worksheet, students tell whether each of 7 figures are polygons. Students then write the name of each figure.
