Tenth graders apply their knowledge of similiar polygons to make conjectures about similarity among three-dimensional models. They test their conjectures by measuring three-dimensional objects and comparing corresponding lengths of edges and angle measures, surface areas, and volumes.
Create three dimensional objects in an applied science lesson. The goal is for your class to recognize, compare, and model shapes. Using cookie cutters and clay or play dough, they create models for three-dimensional shapes.
Students compute surface area and volume of prisms. In this surface area lesson, students find the surface area and volume of rectangular and triangular prisms. Independently, students use their computers to determine the volume, surface area and slant height of three-dimensional objects. Objects may be displayed on a whiteboard.
Eighth graders explore three-dimensional objects (prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones) to draw nets. They use the understanding of drawing nets to find the surface area of pyramids and cylinders.
After reviewing plane shapes, solid shapes, and their properties students pair up and go on a geometric scavenger hunt. This lesson includes essential questions, discussion procedure, worksheets, and an enrichment activity.
Students hone in on their skills at reading diagrams.  In this dimensional activity students collect information on the functions of organs then figure out how all the parts work together. 
Young geometers define and measure surface area through a variety of activities. In groups, they conceive and present ways to calculate the surface area of polyhedra. The constructivist approach used here supports authentic understanding of the concept. Using a worksheet and templates (included), learners calculate surface area and connect nets to surface area by building solid shapes. Worksheet answers are attached.
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive activity starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the activity then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
In this solid shapes activity, learners use solid shapes to complete a table writing the number of faces, edges, and corners of each solid figure. Students write ten answers.
In this identifying solid shapes learning exercise, students observe labeled pictures of solid shapes, read "I spy" clues, and circle the correct multiple choice answers. Students circle two answers and draw or write an explanation for their answers.
In this solid shapes worksheet, students review how to classify and compare solid shapes. Students then name the shapes and write three reasons for their answer.
In this geometric solids activity, students examine 4 different solid shapes then record the number of faces, the number of edges and the name of each shape.
In this solid shapes worksheet, students place a solid on each shape and move the solids that roll to the top box. Students then move the solids that slide to the bottom box and move the solids that roll and slide to the middle box. Students draw lines from the shapes to the boxes to show where they moved the solids.
In this solid shape worksheet, students read about plane and solid shapes, look at examples, then circle the solid shape found in groups of shapes. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
In this plane and solid shapes worksheet, students review images for solid and plane shapes. Students then use the solid shapes and trace their face. Students circle the plane shape that matches and write the name of the plane shape on the line.
In this English Learners solid shapes learning exercise, students review the terms for solid shapes: face and cube. Students then look at the solid shapes and draw a line to the face of the solid shape.
In this solid shapes worksheet, learners read the word problems that name specific solid shapes. Students name the different shapes used in each problem and may draw or write to explain their answer.
In this solid shapes worksheet, students count and name shapes, write the names of missing shapes, write about the difference between a rectangular prism and cube and build designs.
In this solid and plane shapes learning exercise, 2nd graders look at 5 different shapes and circle the solid shape object or item on the right of each shape that could be used to draw the given shape shown.
In this geometry worksheet, 1st graders examine the ways they can sort solid shapes using faces, curved parts, or corners. They examine 7 black line pictures and sort them by the given rules. They apply rules such as finding the shapes with 6 faces or drawing a box around the shapes with one face. They find something in their kitchen that is a shape that rolls. They draw the item.
