This is a fun game to help students build and/or develop strong mathematical vocabulary knowledge in geometry. It gives students an opportunity to group corresponding terms, definitions and pictures to help them build proficiency and conceptual understanding of 14 different geometry terms for plane shapes and fractions.
This game can be played in multiple ways. Students can practice matching terms with pictures, terms with definitions, definitions with pictures, or matching all three (term, definition and picture). It can be played with the whole class, in small groups or as a workshop activity. The game can also be adapted into a memory game for additional independent practice.
*Directions for 2 different ways to use these materials
*14 vocabulary cards, 14 definition cards and 14 picture cards
Mathematical vocabulary is a challenging aspect of many Common Core Assessments, so developing students understanding of different mathematical terms will be essential to their continued success.
This game focuses on 1st-2nd grade math vocabulary from the Geometry Domains in the CCSS.
