Surface Area and Volume
Fifth graders explore geometry by participating in a group math activity. In this shape measurements lesson, 5th graders identify the differences in sides and vertices when comparing cubes, cones and other 3D shapes. Students collaborate with classmates to find the volumes, perimeter, weight and diameter of classroom objects.

Determine the characteristics of three-dimensional models. Given instructions, the young mathematicians in your class use snap cubes to build a specified model. They then match two-dimensional pictures to a three-dimensional object. The final activity asks them to take pictures of the model and justify, in writing, the reason for their match.

Crystals: Geometry and Groups
Students discuss the importance of examining crystals and experiment growing them. In groups, they complete a project in which they use groups in geometry just like crystallographers. They practice solving the groups and proofs and share their results with the class to end the instructional activity.

Combine Solid Shapes
A worksheet that could be used to teach, reteach the idea of combining shapes to create another object. There is a diagram of a house built with two blocks. They select the correct two blocks used and color them. The second picture is of a rocket made of three stacked blocks.

Identifying Solid Shapes - Reteaching
In this geometry worksheet, 2nd graders examine a table that contains pictures and names of 6 solid figures. They use the information to name 4 figures and to circle the picture that has the same shape. They choose between two black line pictures for each shape.
