In this amazing 6th Grade Common Core Geometry Objectives Bulletin Board and Journal Set you will find several different versions for your math journals depending on your needs and desires. I have included a one page portrait version that has all of the items included and then split the objectives into three sets---volume, surface area, and area of polygons (which includes graphing polygons). I have then created a half page version of each that will copy two to a page as I prefer that size for my math journals. I have then included a full size poster for each of the objectives and a cover page as well. There are several difference versions of some objectives as they can be split apart into separate lessons or combined into one.
There are posters for all of the following objectives and more:
After studying this unit…
I can find the area of a rectangle, square or parallelogram using the formula A=bh.
I can find the area of any triangle by using the formula A=1/2bh.
I can derive the formula for the area of a triangle by comparing it to the area of a rectangle
I understand and can explain why the same formula is used to find the area of a rectangle and the area of a parallelogram.
I can find the area of a trapezoid using two different methods---the formula or decomposing.
I can decompose complex figures into squares and rectangles to find the area.
I can graph polygons on a coordinate plane and find the distance between points.
I can label my answers in the correct units when finding area.
I can label the parts of a 3D figure including a face, edge, and vertex.
I can define and draw an example of a net for a 3D shape.
I can correctly identify a net for a pyramid, cube, triangular prism, and rectangular prism.
I can draw a net that will correctly form a pyramid, cube, triangular prism, or rectangular prism.
I can calculate the surface area of a pyramid, cube, triangular prism, and rectangular prism by using a net.
I can solve real world word problems involving surface area.
I can label my answers in square units when finding surface area.
I can define and explain the difference between volume and surface area.
I can explain the meaning of the formulas V=lwh and V=Bh.
I can find the volume of a rectangular prism with both whole number and fractional edge lengths.
Given a volume, I can find both the area of the base and a single side length.
I can explain what happens when a unit cube is broken into cubes with fractional side lengths.
I can fill a rectangular prism with fractional unit cubes and explain how it represents the volume.
I can label my answers in cubic units when finding volume.
