Students explore shapes. In this geometrical figures lesson, students compare and contrast 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes in a modeling clay activity.
In this solid shapes worksheet, learners sort the shapes in the box by writing them in the categories of plane shapes or solid shapes. Students also complete a test prep question.
Here is a fabulous activity 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. A terrific math lesson plan!
Young scholars learn about two dimensional shapes and make connections to their three dimensional shapes. There are many components to this lesson: PowerPoint slides, books to be read, shapes to trace and cut out, and a pirate ship to be made. Finally your young scholars write a story about their pirate ship which includes how their hero will use the three dimensional shapes.
Shape shifters recognize characteristics of polygons. Embracing language arts skills in addition to math, they use a thesaurus to pinpoint specific attributes of a set of polygons. They also participate in a 21-question guessing game using the attributes of polygons. This engaging lesson is helpful in addressing the Common Core initiative for geometry.
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. It's a win/win proposition.
Students explore characteristics of geometric shapes. In pairs, students create geometry riddles for others to solve. Using a pencil, ruler and graph paper, students draw a figure described from the riddle. They build two- and three-dimensional shapes.
Eighth graders identify and name the properties of three-dimensional figures and compare the three-dimensional figures to their two-dimensional counterparts. They analyze actual three-dimensional objects, listen to a teacher-led lecture, and complete a worksheet. This lesson plan includes a script to teach along with.
Fourth graders draw two-dimensional figures on dot paper, and identify two-dimensional figures drawn on dot paper. They discuss and identify plane figures, observe examples by the teacher, and complete a student worksheet.
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. A transformation template is included.
For this algebra word problem, students are given the first and last two  letters of each word. They must figure out it the word is a verb or adverb and decipher what the meaning of each sentence is. There are 15 questions with an answer key.
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. Introduce advanced learners to the idea that Algebra is a way to mathematically describe the actions of 3-D objects.
Elementary graders discover the concept of fractional pieces of a whole. They investigate the meanings of fractions in everyday life and why they are used. Pupils divide brownies amongst each other to demonstrate the use of fractions (practicing first on a notecard). Don't forget the brownies! 
Students identify the number of sides and corners of plane figures. In this geometry instructional activity, students read the book A Cloak for the Dreamer and identify the ways shapes fit together. Students review shapes and identify the sides and corners in each figure.
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.
In this scale factor worksheet, students magnify and also reduce in transformations.  There are seven matching, two true false problems, and three find the image problems on this worksheet.  The solutions are provided.
High schoolers read a book about how houses are built. They identify and sort the many geometric shapes. They use two- and three-dimensional objects.
Young scholars define a plane and a solid shape. In this geometry activity, students compare and contrast different geometric shapes as they relate to solids. They name the geometric solids based on their sides and edges.
Students investigate the concepts of geometry that can be grouped into a flip book that can be used for teaching and review purposes. They define the differences between two and three dimensional figures. Also polygons are reviewed and classified.
In this line of symmetry worksheet, students read about plane figures and lines of symmetry, then answer questions about figure and their symmetry. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
