This product is a fabulous review project your students will LOVE! The preview shows 2 of the pages describing the project.
The project has students redesign their school building in order to review all the 4th grade common core geometry standards and perimeter and area standards including:
- Lines, Segments, Rays
- Angles (acute, obtuse, right)
- Perpendicular and parallel lines
- 2-D shapes
- Lines of Symmetry
- Finding the area of rectangles and squares
- Find the perimeter of shapes
It allows them to create a blueprint for a new school building. It gives them requirements for the various rooms that should be included, how to determine measurements of the rooms, the geometry requirements, and the measurement requirements.
Students can use large chart paper to draw out their blueprint, color code the various geometry requirements, and find and label the various measurement requirements. A rubric is included for grading.
I have used this project with my 4th grade classes the past 3 years, and they absolutely LOVE it! They have so much fun being creative while reviewing these standards. It is a great way to review concepts before the Georgia Milestones, a fabulous extension project, or a great way to still have kids practice 4th grade standards through an engaging project after the Georgia Milestones!
This product is aligned to the following state standards:
Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
I hope you and your students love this project as much as my class and I do! Please remember to leave feedback!
