Know Your Polygons!
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 activity is helpful in addressing the Common Core initiative for geometry.
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.
Geometry: Two-Dimensional Figures
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.
In 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 activity 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.
Sharing Brownies: Fractions That Represent a Fair Share
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!
A Cloak for the Dreamer
Students identify the number of sides and corners of plane figures. In this geometry lesson, 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.
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!
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.
Getting to Know the Shapes
Students read a book about how houses are built. They identify and sort the many geometric shapes. They use two- and three-dimensional objects.
Plane and Solid Figures
Students define a plane and a solid shape. In this geometry lesson, students compare and contrast different geometric shapes as they relate to solids. They name the geometric solids based on their sides and edges.
Geometry Flip Book
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.
Line of Symmetry: English Learners
In this line of symmetry worksheet, learners read about plane figures and lines of symmetry, then answer questions about figure and their symmetry. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
Lesson 3: Area
Students review the concepts of area, surface area, volume, and perimeter. Using the provided worksheets, the students demonstrate their ability to calculate area, volume, and perimeter.
Triangles and Quadrilaterals
Second graders explore triangles and quadrilaterals. They rotate to various centers in the room to identify and examine triangles and quadrilaterals. After presenting a picture to the class, 2nd graders locate right angles, triangles and quadrilaterals in the picture. They create patterns by gluing shapes onto a piece of paper. Students throw dice and draw lines around animals according to the number thrown.
Let's Explore the World of Triangles and Quadrilaterals!
Second graders explore the features of triangles and quadrilaterals. In this lesson on triangles and quadrilaterals, 2nd graders rotate with their group to five different activities all exploring a different aspect of geometry.
For this solid and plane figure worksheet, students pick which solid figure they could trace to make the plane figure shown. Students complete 4 multiple choice questions.
Students review plane figures by playing a game that resembles "Twister." They listen to directions to locate a large example of the figure which is placed on the floor.
10 by 10 Tessellations
Fifth graders, with a partner, create tessellation patterns by playing 10 by 10 Tessellations. They need to use critical thinking skills to decide if pattern block plane figures tessellate and how each block best fits into the pattern.
