This 76 page file includes station activities focused on geometric relationships (resulting from parallel lines and transversals) and volume of cones, cylinders, and spheres. They are designed to align with common core standards for eighth 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 an eighth grade 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 13: Geometric Relationships
Unit 14: Volume of Cones, Spheres, and Cylinders
As 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 (5 Pages!)
2. Article - Parallel Lines and Transversals (With Partner Activity!)
3. I Have Who Has - Transversals & Angles (15 Cards!)
4. Problem-Solving - Angles in Triangles (With Manipulatives!)
5. Three of a Kind - Angles (Open-Ended!)
6. Math Match - Volume (24 Cards!)
7. Triangler - Sphere Volume (16 Cards!)
8. Roundabout - Volume of Cylinders and Cones (4 Versions!)
9. Dominoes - Cones, Spheres, and Cylinders (18 Cards!)
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:
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
