geometry lesson plans
This geometry unit contains hands-on activities, sorts, worksheets, graphic organizers, and games! There is also a geometry vocabulary journal for students to complete. The games include I Have Who Has and Geometry Concentration! Answer keys are included for the worksheets. With this unit students will practice identifying and describing the characteristics of quadrilaterals such as squares, rectangles, trapezoid, rhombus, and kite. Students will also identify and draw plane figures.
This is a 2-Dimensional Polygon match for studying geometry. The cards consist of basic geometrical shapes and attributes used to identify them in a "What am I?" format. The polygons included are: triangle, rectangle, square, rhombus, trapezoid, parallelogram, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon.
Quadrilateral Foldable with Cheat Sheet. Create a Quadrilateral foldable or just pass out the cheat sheet, the choice is yours. Great for an interactive notebook. Students will learn how to classify the following quadrilaterals: Parallelogram, Rectangle, Rhombus, Square, Trapezoid Isosceles, Trapezoid and Kite.
This is the vocabulary my students needed (but were missing) to describe the differences between quadrilaterals. The quadrilateral cut and paste activity really required students to wrestle with the definitions. The activity supports CCSS.Math.3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories may share attributes, and that the shared attributes can define a larger category. Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals.
