This enrichment project focusing on geometry and measurement can be used to push your higher-level thinkers into a real-world application. Though I used it for grade 2 enrichment, it could easily be used for third grade as well.
In this project, students are asked to answer questions for the Geometry Pizzeria in return for a homework pass from their teacher. Students will identify geometric shapes by their attributes, estimate and measure the perimeter of each shape using both inches and centimeters, and answer questions about their measurements and the shapes in the packet.
The product also includes space for students to show their work. A common core aligned teacher rubric is included to assess student work following the Common Core Standards covered in this project. A student reflection rubric and survey are also included to give you feedback about your students' experience with the project. This can be used as a classroom enrichment project, small group project, or even homework based on your students.
Skills assessed include:
-measuring perimeter length to the nearest whole inch and centimeter
-estimate the length of a perimeter of a shape
-compare measurements of the perimeter lengths of two different shapes
-identify and draw shapes using identifying attributes
-partition rectangles into equal squares, rows and columns
-partition shapes into equal shapes and identify the name of the equal pieces and their new shapes
