These activities help build conceptual understanding of shapes in engaging ways. The worksheets complement typical shape activities so they provide meaningful practice. There are 15 activities and 13 worksheets included.
These activities, games and worksheets will help your students develop an understanding of halves and fourths, how to partition rectangles and squares into halves and fourths and how decomposing into more equal shares will create smaller shares. There are seven activities, two games and seven works
This packet covers the geometry standards for the Common Core Standards. Students work with defining and non-defining attributes of polygons, build and draw shapes, compose shapes and partition circles and rectangles with the content in this packet.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
