In this letter g worksheet, students complete activities with the letter g sound that include spatial skills, color skills, and phonemic awareness. They listen as the teacher reads the directions to locate the letter g over, under and in front of gorilla pictures. They listen for the letter g sound in words read by the teacher and circle yes or no indicating if they heard the sound.
Students choose a picture and use all seven Tangram pieces to fill in the outline. They describe and visualize what figures look like when they are transformed through rotations or flips or are put together or taken apart in different ways.
Students make puzzles from world maps, dramatizing how much of the globe is covered by ocean.
Primaries create a map of a pet in this unusual lesson. Once they finish the map, they label pet parts and then use directional and positional words to give a classmate a tour of their pet. You may want to have a special day for little ones to bring their actual pet to class and give another tour!
Young scholars get to experiment with using non-standard units of measurement. They also try their hand at creating a map of a special place at their school. Some excellent handouts are embedded in this instructional activity, which will make it easy to implement with your charges.
Students culminate a measurement unit by linking measurement and geometry to create maps and charts to show spatial relationships, and to apply the principles of location, navigation, and direction by describing routes.
Learners create a map of their face and practice locating different parts using the geometric and measurement concepts they have learned in previous lessons. They reproduce their face and describe it to reinforce skills of measuring and mapping. Some terrific worksheets are embedded in this fine plan which combines elements of geography and math.
Students create pet maps. In this spatial relationships lesson, students design and label pet maps and then respond to questions regarding the process.
Young scholars construct circles using the Geometer's Sketchpad software. Given specific specifications, students sketch circles with a compass and paper and then by using the Geometer's Sketchpad. Young scholars compare the actual compass drawn circles to the sketchpad circles. They write a summary of their findings.
Third graders use pennies in order to strengthen the skills of estimation and combining number values. The activity helps them to recognize numerical values on a number line and use it for adding or subtracting.
First graders participate in a lesson in order to increase visual/spatial skills and counting blocks to recognize quantities. Working in pairs they work together with single blocks to recognize the represented number.
Students use this problem to develop spatial skills. As the students handle the shapes and join them together they strengthen their understanding of the attributes of shapes. This lesson also gives students the opportunity to make up their own puzzles which is good for building confidence.
In this tangrams learning exercise, 10th graders solve 7 different problems related to designing tangrams. First, they trace each of the figures shown on the sheet. Then, students cut out the pieces and rearrange them to form each figure and record each answer by drawing lines within each figure. They also create a different figure using the seven tangram pieces and solve the puzzle.
High schoolers investigate the biodiversity in estuaries. In this estuary lesson plan, students use Google Earth to explore the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. They produce a biodiversity concept map and portray the life of a plant and an animal in an estuary by producing a poster.
Shape shifters examine and experiment with pattern shapes. In this geometry lesson, they work in groups to name and describe pattern block shapes, and they discover the combinations of shapes that can be placed inside a hexagon.
Teach young learners about rectangles and shapes they see in the world around them. A discussion about how the world of sports often use two and three-dimensional shapes, from the equipment, to the playing fields themselves. A very good worksheet is included in the plan to help facilitate the lesson.
Tenth graders explore how to use basic geometry and calculation skills to design their dream house. They use calculation to design the home and estimate the price within a budget of $150,000.
Students study the developmental processes students go through from an infant to age six.
Students compare and contrast rap music with tango music. In this cultural geography lesson plan, students identify similarities and differences in the musical styles. Students also explore the cultures that produce the 2 musical styles in order to discover their shared roots.
Young scholars identify and visualize congruent and similar two-dimensional geometric figures. They recognize that rotations, translations, and reflections do not change geometric figures.
