Roll and Draw... a geometry game for primary students is a fun way to reinforce geometry concepts! Students roll one die, call out the part (indicated in the key), identify the 2d shape(s) needed for that part, identify 2 attributes of the shape(s) (this can be optional) and then draw the shape(s) on a dry erase slate or on a recording sheet (half page sized are included in this file). Each game board includes a variety of 2d shapes.
The following shapes are included (each game board does NOT include all the shapes):
rectangle, circle, square, triangle, half circle,
pentagon, rhombus, oval, trapezoid, hexagon
The file includes:
Teacher’s notes page
4 game boards: draw a robot, draw a house, draw a cat, draw a dancer
4 pages to use on an interactive whiteboard (for modeling or for playing whole class) **You will need to provide your own die.**
Recording sheets (half sized pages that can be used one at a time OR staple a bunch in a pack so the students can share their work with their families)
This game helps students apply knowledge of 2d shapes, attributes and allows them to combine 2d shapes to make new shapes.
I use a variety of smart board lessons to teach geometry in my classroom. I use these lessons before introducing this game. You can check them out by clicking the links below.
