Making paper snowflakes isn't just a fun geometry activity. It also gives students a tool to practice identifying geometric concepts like:

✅ 2 dimensional figures
✅ Angles
✅ Types of triangles
✅ Types of quadrilaterals
✅ Lines of symmetry
✅ Line relationships (parallel, intersecting and perpendicular)

This packet contains:
✅ Instructions with photos at each step on how to make a paper snowflake project for geometry with 8 points
✅ 1 Activity sheet with 6 suggested activities
✅ 2 activity cards with 15 different geometric concepts

For each activity, have children work in groups of 4 (with mixed ability). This way each child have more of a chance of finding more of the given exemplars.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
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.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
