“Geometry - Reason with Shapes and Their Attributes”
for 3rd Grade Students with Visual Impairments
This educational resource pack is modified for students with Visual Impairments: visual, audio and color coding prompts. This worksheet is designed for "low vision" students; referring to a severe vision loss in distance and near vision. Students use a combination of vision and other senses to learn, and they may require adaptations in lighting or the print size, and, in some cases, braille.
A media player for wav or m4a files is required to listen to audio links.
Here is a link for teaching strategies for students with Visual Impairments:
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
Fill in the Blanks Tests
Teacher can use completed worksheets or video of student reactions as proof of completion.
Red print relates to notes for the teacher, parent or self-instruction.
Certificate of Achievement is available for students that finish the resource pack satisfactorily
