A key characteristic of trapezoids is that they have a set of parallel lines—lines that never intersect. Use this helpful geometry resource with your students to practice identifying parallel lines in trapezoids and comparing different 2-D shapes.
What makes a sphere unique compared to other shapes? Does it share any similarities? Use this resource with your young mathematicians to practice identifying the characteristics of this three-dimensional shape and comparing it to other shapes.
Use this geometry exercise with your third graders to practice recognizing the characteristics of a cylinder and finding real-life examples of the three-dimensional shape. For an added challenge, see just how many different shapes your students can name!
It’s time to practice finding perimeter! Use this geometry exercise with your students to give them practice calculating the perimeter of various trapezoids. Students will use addition to add up the lengths of the four sides of trapezoids.
This lesson on perimeter will let your students walk around the class to see the border, use a measuring tape to measure the walls in their classroom, and enable them to understand how math is related to real life!
Introduce your students to coordinate planes and plots with these worksheets, activities, and exercises that help them learn what they need to know to succeed later on. Teaching third grade geometry and having students practice a concept to solidify the knowledge is made easy with these prepared resources. Activities have your class learn together in a fun and social setting, while exercises allow you to check individual performance. Advanced students may benefit from our fourth grade geometry resources.
