Description: Rather than learn the properties of shapes by rote, students can use pattern blocks to investigate the common 2-D shapes, develop visual images of the shapes, and discover their properties.
Additional support is provided through the Teacher Notes and Answers.
The resource includes Extra Practice for students to make the all-important transition from the concrete (hands on) to symbolic representations.
This is Chapter 3 of five chapters covering Measurement, Fractions, Geometry, Patterns, and Transformations.
All the Pattern Block chapters as well as our other resources are available in my store at www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Math-By-Jim-At-Root-7.
Pattern Blocks are not included but a free Pattern Blocks template can be downloaded in our Free Section.
