Transfomations: 4th Grade
How is a plane figure like a toy Transformer? They both have the ability to change. Students think about the ways plane shapes can transform. They practice concept vocabulary then use the computer to design their own quilt square. Their design must have at least three polygons and two transformations, when they are finished they share their quilt square with a peer.
Understanding the Difference Between Area and Perimeter
Students identify the difference between area and perimeter. In this geometry lesson, student discover the difference between area and perimeter by measuring plane figures. Students work in small groups that are differentiated by ability levels.

Visualizing and Naming Polygons
A really useful resource contains 116 slides covering basic geometric concepts related to 2-D or plane shapes. Shape properties, translations, reflections, congruence, symmetry, and grid work are all laid out in a comprehensive and elementary age appropriate manner, complete with example, visuals, and partner work.
5th - 6th Math
A straight edge, a right angle, a number of vertices; sounds like it's time to classify polygons. That's right you and your class will learn all about the properties of polygons and how to classify them with this easy to follow slide-show presentation.
4th - 5th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Here is a fabulous lesson on shapes for young elementary learners. They view a presentation on shapes that is led by the teacher, then construct shapes on their own using paper, straws, tape, and other supplies. Fantastic worksheets are embedded in the plan, as is the weblink that the teacher accesses to show the presentation.
