This guided geometry lesson takes second graders on an exploration of 2D and 3D shapes. Kids will learn how to sort shapes, as well as partition them into halves, quarters and thirds. Tangrams are also featured within the exercise in order to give kids practical ways of practicing their new geometry skills. For more printable practice, try the geometry worksheets recommended by our curriculum advisors to accompany this lesson.
Explore 3-D shapes with your students and help them identify and talk about the relevant attributes of three-dimensional shapes, all while using real-world examples! Use this as a stand-alone lesson or alongside the Shape Models lesson.
Studying faces in math is a little different from people watching, but can be equally as satisfying, if for different reasons. Whether students are working on calculating the area of different shapes, or they need to figure out different shapes’ edges and vertices, the worksheets below will gently remind them of the proper steps to achieve accurate answers to questions about faces.
