Geometry Activities for Grade 6 Students
Geometry is all about shapes and their properties. Do shapes and properties have your students stumped?
Well you've come to the right place because our activities can help students understand concepts without very much teacher intervention. We offer a total of 31 Geometry activities that eliminate dull lectures and rote memorization in favor of hands on, student-centered learning. Our activities allow students to construct their own understanding of Geometry. For example, in one of the group activities, a student in the group says the lengths, 14 m, 12 m, and 14 m. Another student in the group is called on to state the name of the triangle if naming a triangle by its sides. In this case, the answer is an isosceles triangle. In this set, we offer 10 activities on classifying angles, 13 activities on classifying triangles and quadrilaterals, 3 activities on understanding the relationship between radius, diameter, and circumference of a circle, and 5 activities that teach students how to locate and name points on a coordinate plane. Teachers will never again have to worry about their students being prepared for a test because these activities help students to retain the “big ideas” of Geometry. With these 31 Geometry activities, students are taught to think naturally, reasonably, and systematically through clearly stated and ample exercises.
After using these activities, students will be able to demonstrate the following skills —
?Use angle measurements to classify angles as acute,
obtuse, or right.
?Identify relationships involving angles in triangles and
?Describe the relationship between radius, diameter, and
circumference of a circle.
?The student is expected to locate and name points on a
coordinate plane using ordered pairs of non-negative rational
The activities can be used to Assess concepts, Introduce concepts, Review concepts, and to help students Retain the concepts that have been taught. Our Math Activities can be used in a variety of ways to “AIRR” out your math curriculum.
Section One contains a numbered list of activities. Each activity is explained using a step-by-step process identifying the group size and materials needed to complete the task. Some of the activities have matching activity cards and practice sheets which are found in Section Two, Activity Sheets. The top right side of each set of activity cards, and practice sheet corresponds with the matching activity number. An answer key is conveniently provided in Section Three.
Our math activities are aligned to the following standards:
