This 88 page file includes of station activities focused on geometry. They are designed to align with common core standards for sixth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in my classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover Unit 10: Problem Solving with Area in 2-D Shapes and Unit 11: Problem Solving with Surface Area and Volume.
As my students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips
2. Triangle Area Dominoes (16 cards!)
3. Rectangle Area Roundabouts (4 activities!)
4. Geometry Math Match (36 cards!)
5. Area Puzzler Problem-Solving (individual practice!)
6. Complex Area Problem-Solving (real-world!)
7. How to Quantify a Three-Dimensional Figure Article (with graphic organizer!)
8. Surface Area and Volume Roundabouts (4 activities!)
9. On a Roll with Surface Area (unique problems for every student!)
10. Rectangular Prism Volume Triangler (16 cards!)
11. Packing a Prism Problem-Solving (hands-on!)
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.1 Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.2 Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.4 Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
