This 51 page set is a bundle of 5 activities that focus on the attributes of solid and plane shapes.
The activities in this set are:
Defining and Non-defining Attributes of a Shape
Defining and Non-defining attributes can be a vague concept for students. The vocabulary alone is a bit tricky, but getting them to understand why any of it matters can be even trickier. This packet is a tool to help with this common core based standard. Students practice sorting the attributes of a shape into either a defining or non-defining group. The set includes a color sort, which makes for a good center activity. It also includes lesson ideas and two student worksheet sorts.
Shape Game – Plane Shapes
This product is a file folder game to help students learn plane shapes. Students use 27 picture cards to identify shapes and name attributes as they move around the game board.
This set also includes a student game board sheet that can be used for a whole class activity or sent home for homework.
3-D Shape Game (10 Pages)
This product is also a file folder game. It is a tool for helping students learn 3-D shapes. Students use 27 picture cards to identify shapes and name attributes as they move around the game board. This set also includes a student game board sheet that can be used for a whole class activity or sent home for homework.
Common Core Geometry Attribute Pages
Common Core Geometry Attribute Pages provide students with key vocabulary and concepts listed in the CC math standards. While I prefer a hands on approach to having students learn shapes and the attributes, these pages serve to reinforce students learning. They also make for convenient homework pages.
This packet consists of 12 geometry pages.
Pages 3-6 – Focuses on naming plane shapes and defining them by the number of sides and whether they are closed vs open.
Page 7 – Focuses on composing a new shape from two other shapes.
Page 8-10 – Focuses on naming solid shapes and defining their attributes.
Page 11-14 – Focuses on key vocabulary for partitioning shapes (fractions ½ and ¼).
I've also included some ideas for hands on practice.
Name my Shape
Students use the Name my Shape Cards to match plane and solid shapes. Then they go on to explain their understanding by answering the prompt, “I know because…”.
This set includes 15 different shapes that are matched for a total of 30 individual cards. It can be played as a center activity or as a partner match. This set also includes two practice sheets.
