Students examine the different types of polygons and their characteristics. In this polyhedrons lesson, students discuss the derivations of specific models of polyhedrons. Students work in pairs to make a copy of a polygon model, then discuss the strategies they used to solve various problems with polyhedrons.
3rd - 6th Math
Students are introduced to polyhedrons through using straw models to explore geometric solids and constructing Christmas tree ornaments using Epsom salt crystals. Students will view interactive videos and investigate and retrieve information on polyhedras on the Internet.
9th - 12th Math
Exploring Three-Dimensional Figures
In this exploring three-dimensional figures worksheet, 10th graders solve 111 various types of problems that include three-dimensional figures. They create a model of each figure and draw the back view for each one. Then, students identify the number and type of polygons that are faces of each polyhedron.
Geometry End Review/Test
In this end of the year geometry review worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 140 different multiple choice problems. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through a point and parallel to a given line. Then, students determine the transformations that best represent an isometry.
Exploring Geometric Solids
In this geometric solids activity, students identify given polyhedrons. They determine the number of sides, faces, vertices, and edges. This one-page activity contains approximately 20 problems. Three problems require the student to write a rule and justify answers.
7th - 9th Math
This resource offers a series of hands-on activities in which learners sketch and construct symmetrical origami, paper dolls, snowflakes, and polyhedra while adhering to specific requirements. These activities ask class members to experiment with shapes and explain the nature of the symmetry involved.
7th - 10th Math
In this math lesson that includes worksheets, students compare the properties of polyhedrons, look for patterns in the number of vertices, faces, and edges by filling in a table. They make thread shapes and determine which shapes are formed when the thread is dipped in soapy water.
5th - 6th Science
Three- and Two- Dimensional Geometry
In this three- and two- dimensional geometry instructional activity, 7th graders solve 12 various problems related to geometric shapes and measurement. They first use paper and a pencil to sketch the front, side, back, top and bottom views of each object.
An outstanding lesson on teaching the basic shapes and polygon names to young geometers is here for you. In it, learners investigate the role of basic polygons in the strength of structures. They use geoboards, rubber bands, streamed video, and engage in games and in-class activities that should strengthen their understanding of the world of geometry.
2nd - 3rd Math
Examining Geometric Solids
Students make observations and classify geometric solids by characteristics. In this examining geometric solids lesson, students classify three-dimensional geometric solids. Students examine why classification of geometric solids is important and how this knowledge helps us.
5th - 6th Math
Classifying Three-Dimensional Shapes
Compare geometric solids based on their properties. Your emergent geometers use spaghetti and marshmallows to build models so they can examine the number of faces, edges, and vertices on polyhedra of their own creation. Resource includes worksheets, notes, a chart to record the properties of various solids, and a brief quiz assessment (with no answer key).
