We have created 33 unique Geometry activities that address a wide variety of topics. Geometry can be a difficult topic to teach due to the wide- range of concepts. No problem, because our activities offer creative ways to provide the best instruction. With the 33 Geometry activities in this group, teachers can anticipate and reflect on the errors and misconceptions of their students. These activities present practice on recognizing 2- and 3-Dimensional shapes by name, spatial reasoning, applying geometric properties using appropriate language for kindergarten and first grade students, and so much more. Teachers can discover helpful ways to teach geometry with these 33 Geometry activities created by teachers for teachers.
My favorite Geometry activity in the group involves critical thinking and at the same time assesses students’ ability to name shapes and place them in the correct square. The teacher gives students a 3-by-3 grid and a set of shape cards. The teacher then gives instructions to students to place a specific shape in one of the squares on the grid until all spaces have been filled.
The activities in this group help students to…
?Describe and identify two-dimensional geometric
figures, including circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares, (a
special type of rectangle).
?Describe and identify three-dimensional geometric
figures, including spheres, rectangular prisms (including cubes),
cylinders, and cones.
?Describe and identify two- and three-dimensional
geometric figures in order to sort them according to a given
using informal and formal language.
?Use concrete models to combine two-dimensional geometric
figures to make new geometric figures.
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:
