Showing 161 - 180 of 277 resources
In this line and angles worksheet, students explore basic geometry vocabulary. They classify polygons. Kids determine the area and perimeter of given shapes. They examine the parts of a circle, find volume and surface area of objects. Students identify various properties of angles and sides.
7th - 8th Math
Tenth graders explore the concept of 3-D similarity of polygons. In this 3-D similarity of polygons activity, 10th graders measure the lengths, widths, and heights of two boxes that students consider to be similar. Students work in groups to identify corresponding angles and sides among two 3-D figures.
Water Treatment Plant Tour
Students define vocabulary related to geometry and calculate the volume. In this geometry lesson plan, students calculate flow rates, and volume as it relates to a water plant facility. They calculate the volume of three dimensional shapes and the retention rates.
9th - 11th Math
Geometry and Spatial Sense
Students investigate geometric shapes in 2 and 3 dimensions. In this geometry lesson, students create a model chocolate factory working in groups and using an actual cake. Students take a quiz about measurement equations dealing with the area of their chocolate factory.
6th - 8th Math
How many edges do I need to cut in order to open a cube?
Young scholars problem solve to open a cube to create different shapes. In this problem solving lesson plan, students are given a cube and the shapes to open it up to, and they have to cut the cube open to make certain shapes. This gives them a better understanding of 3 dimensional shapes.
2nd - 4th Math
New Review Wetland Inhabitants
A collection of activities, printable materials, and informational handouts are a perfect addition to your unit on the plants and animals that live in the wetlands habitat. First, kids bring in a picture of an adult, as well as a picture of that adult as a child, and compare how he or she changed throughout the years.
K - 6th Science
Voyage: A Journey Through Our Solar System
Thoroughly written, this plan walks you through every detail of having your high school astronomers design scale models of the solar system. Complete instructions on building to scale, lesson procedures, and associated worksheets are all included.
8th - 12th Science
Floaters and Sinkers
Middle and high schoolers are introduced to the important concept of density. They devise methods to determine the densities of solid objects, including the method of water displacement to determine volumes of irregularly-shaped objects. By comparing densities of various solids to the density of water, students discover that ordinarily, objects with densities greater than water will sink, while those with densities less than water will float.
7th - 9th Math
Geometry Scavenger Hunt
Students participate in a scavenger hunt to find the different attributes of selected objects, to prove the object is a particular shape. Sides, angles, parallel lines, congruent angles, opposite angles, diagonal bisectors, congruent sides, etc.
6th - 11th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Geometry Course Review
In this geometry review set of worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 139 various types of problems. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through a point and parallel to a line given. Then, students find the length of the leg of a right triangle.
Geometry Review Exam
In this geometry review worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 100 various types of problems studied in geometry. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through two points and parallel to a given line. They also find the length of the leg of a right triangle.
