Learners examine different shapes. For this geometry lesson, students review the names and attributes of plane and solid shapes. Learners use shape cards to test their knowledge of each.
"Fore!" All right, no one really yells this out in miniature golf, but this well-defined activity will have your charges using lots of numbers in their unique design of a miniature golf hole. Included in the activity criteria is the geometric difficulty of scoring a hole-in-one, creative use of material, and best use of space. Designers need to include scale drawings of their designs complete with calculations and a report explaining the design. This a fantastic lesson that will get your kids motivated and thinking mathematically. 
Farming is full of mathematics, and it provides numerous real-world examples for young mathematicians to study. Here, we look at a cylinder-shaped storage silo that has one flat side. Given certain dimensions, students need to determine the current storage capacity and design a new storage facility to use for an anticipated increase in production. The activity uses knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem, area of a circle, properties of triangles, understanding of volume, unit analysis, and percentage increase.  
Compare two- and three-dimensional shapes and construct three dimensional models from two-dimensional shapes. Diagram the shapes and reflect about the process in writing.
Young scholars explore the concept of congruent and similar figures.  In this congruent and similar figure lesson, students classify pictures according to congruent and similar figures.  Young scholars measure the lengths of various figures to determine if they are congruent, similar, or neither.  Students measure and compare the diagonals of various polygons such as parallelograms, rectangles, squares, trapezoids, and rhombuses. 
Bring three-dimensional shapes to life in your classroom. First introduce the vocabulary of three-dimensional shapes, such as sphere, cube, and pyramid. Then, show your kids examples of how to use two-dimensional objects draw three-dimensional objects and practice drawing them.
Fifth graders explore perimeter, volume and area and how they are used in everyday situations. In this geometry lesson students investigate the units of measure and begin to develop meaning for each. Then determine how to use them in everyday life situations.
Students create three dimensional shapes using concept maps. In this geometry lesson, students investigate the impact of mental schemas on humans. They collect data on this topic and plot their data on a coordinate plane.
Students work with three dimensional objects. For this geometry lesson, students examine models of spheres, cones, cubes, prisms, and pyramids, and identify them by their edges, vertices, and faces.
In this solid shapes instructional activity, students review how to classify and compare solid shapes. Students then name the shapes and write three reasons for their answer.
Junior designers brainstorm the elements that a bedroom might have, such as a bed, television, and dresser. They identify which items are needs and which are desires. They practice measurement skills in the classroom by determining its dimensions and the dimensions of various objects in it. Finally, each individual creates a sketch of their dream room and writes a descriptive essay about it. Note that even if you do not have the Share™ application that is part of the lesson, there is plenty here to use in your math class.
Second graders identify geometric shapes. In this three-dimensional shapes lesson, 2nd graders watch a video and read a book about geometric shapes. Students identify and classify different three-dimensional shapes using manipulatives, a scavenger hunt type game, and various teacher created worksheets.
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 shapes activity, students 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.
Use this activity on cross-sections of three-dimensional shapes in your math class to work on algebra or geometry Common Core standards. The lesson includes a list of relevent terminology, and a step-by-step process to illustrate the concepts with styrofoam cones and two-dimensional graphs. It also provides a link to the worksheet necessary to complete the exercise.
In this solid shapes worksheet, students read the word problems and solve them by circling the shapes that follow the rule in the word problem.
In this solid shapes worksheet, learners sort the shapes in the box by writing them in the categories of plane shapes or solid shapes. Students also complete a test prep question.
In this solid shapes worksheet, students study the illustrated pictures that represent shapes. Students then circle the word that tells about the picture.
In this three-dimensional shapes geometry lesson plan, learners identify geometric solids and name their properties. They define "face," "edge," and "vertex," and construct geometric solids using marshmallows as vertices and toothpicks as edges.
Two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional objects are used to solve problems involving volume and surface area. Pupils utilize orthographic maps to model properties of geometric figures. This high-quality lesson presents engaging activities and worksheets embedded in the plan.
