Paper Folding 2D and 3D Shapes
Students examine the vocabulary that describes shapes and angles and make connections with the relationships that involve two and three dimensional objects. In this paper folding 2D and 3D shapes lesson, students work with a partner to fold paper while providing instructions.
5th - 8th Math
Volume of Prisms
Explore the concept of volume of prisms using an applet to perform the calculations. The link to the interactive applet is embedded into the lesson plan as well as a link to associated data sheets. Get your math class to the computer lab and build some skills!

Surface Area Nets
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.
Surface Area of Rectangular Prism
With this interactive lesson plan, learners compute the surface area of rectangular prisms. They visit an online investigation applet and record data on the provided handout. Pair this lesson plan with the volume lesson plan by the same publisher as an opportunity to incorporate technology into your math curriculum.

SuperShapes, Part 1; "Tri"ing Triangles
An outstanding lesson on triangles awaits your math scholars. Learners focus on the triangle, which is the strongest of all polygons. They see the role that triangles play in the design of buildings, and learn about triangle characteristics, and the Pythagorean Theorem.
5th - 6th Math
Visualize 3-D Objects and Make Nets of Common Solids
In this 3-D objects and common solids worksheet, students cut out and count the number of faces on several different types of boxes and make a cuboid from straws or a card. Students fill out 4 different categories involving 5 different types of pyramids.
4th - 5th Math
A one page worksheet to identify solid shapes: circle, cone, cylinder, rectangular prism, sphere, and pyramid. The bottom half of the page has student identifying movement of some of the solids. They have to determine if a cube, sphere, and cylinder, either slides, rolls, or stacks.
K - 2nd Math
Combine Solid Shapes: Enrichment
Give your mathematicians a little more practice with those solid shapes. There is a picture of a train built with shape blocks and they need to color shapes that were used to make the picture of the train. Then they need to count the shapes and write how many there are of each type used.
K - 2nd Math
Identifying Solid Shapes
Young math learners could do this worksheet in class or for homework. Solid shapes are identified and labeled in a box on the top half of the worksheet. There are six everyday items on the bottom and your math learners need to identify the solid shape that it represents and write the word.
K - 2nd Math
Surface Area and Volume
You and your class will like this lesson on using visual models to relate the volume and surface area of solid shapes. Learners construct three-dimensional forms using nets. They calculate the surface area and volume for each and then draw them.
5th - 8th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Shapes are Everywhere
Multiple strategies in this lesson plan will enhance learners' knowledge of shapes. First, they will work in pairs to guess and explain a solid shape using math terms. Then, the class will observe a photograph of a large city and identify different shapes throughout the scene.
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.
Surface Area of Prisms
Students compute surface area and volume of prisms. In this surface area instructional activity, 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.
