Students will learn how to identify geometric figures and their attributes in the world around them.
This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
Primary Learning Objective(s):
Students will be able to identify and classify geometric figures according to their attributes.
Additional Learning Objective(s):
61 to 90 Minutes
Materials and Resources:
Technology Resources Needed:
Use interactive whiteboard tools to demonstrate the various polygons and there attributes being discussed.
(Overhead projectors or document cameras may be used to discuss polygons and there attributes if interactive whiteboard is not available.)
This lesson should follow a discussion on basic geometry about polygons or shapes.
Have students write an exit slip discussing geometric figures and their attributes.
Have students build polygons with various materials they can find at home for homework to display in class.
You can continue the lesson using build robots (see Boy+Bot for Grades K-2).
Review in a small group polygons and their attributes.
Continue to use manipulatives given by teacher to complete assignments.
Each area below is a direct link to general teaching strategies/classroom
for students with identified learning and/or behavior problems such as: reading
or math performance below grade level; test or classroom assignments/quizzes at
a failing level; failure to complete assignments independently; difficulty with
short-term memory, abstract concepts, staying on task, or following directions;
poor peer interaction or temper tantrums, and other learning or behavior problems.
