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!

Shape Hunt Part 2
Shapes are everywhere in the world around us, from rectangular doors to the circular wheels of a car. The second lesson in this series opens the eyes of young mathematicians to this wonderful world of shapes as they search the classroom, playground, or other locations around the school for common geometric figures.

Shape Up or Ship Out
Explore the use of solid figures in architecture with your early builders. Help learners identify and name solid three-dimensional shapes. They then work in groups to plan and construct an original model home using blocks. This is a really nice lesson.

An outstanding lesson plan 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.

Measurement: Finding Areas of Rectangles
Gardening geometers construct the formula for the area of a rectangle by viewing a video revolving around two young people, their lawn mowing business, and their need to charge by the square meter. A relevant real-life application lesson!

New Review Fall into Healthy Shapes
Kindergartners identify geometric shapes by planting a fall garden. They start their seeds in containers that have different shapes, and keep track of their plants based on those shapes. This brilliantly designed and incredibly thorough lesson plan combines geometry and gardening.

Where's That Shape?
Your kindergartners know their shapes - but can they identify their locations? A 3x3 grid contains geometric shapes such as diamonds, circles, and hexagons, and pupils locate the shapes within the grid. Which shape is underneath the rectangle?

What Shape Am I?
Sharpen your pencil and grab a ruler, it's time to draw some quadrilaterals! Given the definition of a parallelogram, rectangle, and rhombus, learners draw examples and nonexamples of each figure. The three definitions are then used to draw and identify a fourth mystery shape.

Investigate the properties of three-dimensional figures with this Arctic-themed math lesson. Beginning with a class discussion about different types of solid figures present in the classroom, young mathematicians are then given a two-sided worksheet asking them to draw 3-D shapes, identify their parts, and create cubes from a series of nets.

3-D Shape Sort
From the apple on your desk and the coffee cup in your hand, to the cabinets along the classroom wall, basic three-dimensional shapes are found everywhere in the world around us. Introduce young mathematicians to the these common figures and the attributes that define them with this fun shape-sorting activity.

Finding the Area of Polygons
Third graders are exposed to finding the area of polygons by decomposing figures and recomposing them into rectangles. This strategy allows children to expand on their prior knowledge of constructing shapes by rearranging parts into squares.

The Class Quilt
Create a class quilt in this geometry lesson. Learners measure and cut out polygons from felt or graph paper and put the squares together to form a class quilt. They need to use knowledge of fractions, scale, polygons, and area to complete their 12-inch square.

Area and Perimeter
Students investigate area and perimeter of various shapes. For this area and perimeter of various shapes lesson, students record how area of shapes change when a dimension is doubled, halved, quartered, etc. Students make scatter plots of radii v.

Stop, Look, and Find Shapes in Our School Community
Use this project-based lesson to help your young mathematicians learn about shapes in their environment. Using everyday technology, learners must find shapes such as squares, circles, triangles, and rectangles. They use digital cameras to capture shapes in the environment, and produce a book of shapes which features their photographs.
