Exercises
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 practising their new geometry skills. For more printable practise, try the geometry worksheets recommended by our curriculum advisors to accompany this lesson.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities.
Faces, Vertices and Edges SongWhen students learn about 3D shapes, they begin working with new vocabulary for different attributes of these figures. This catchy geometry song gives kids a visual lesson about how to identify faces, vertices and edges on 3D shapes. Your child will sing and watch along without realizing how much she's learning.
Geometry Picnic: Halves, Thirds, QuartersScrumptious food has been pre-cut and needs to be packed up for a picnic—it's up to your kid to determine which fruits and veggies are sliced up into halves, thirds, and quarters. Children practise geometrical concepts by identifying which foods have been partitioned into equal amounts.
Square TangramYour students will love this opportunity to practise reconstructive surgery on Muggo the Robot. This tangram not only helps bring Muggo back to life, but also brings new energy to young learners’ studies of how triangles, squares, and even parallelograms can fit together to create a larger shape.
Hexuzzle 2Blast off into space with this Hexuzzle that gives year three students a deeper understanding of hexagons through seeing how shapes fit together to form a hexagon. Rotating the hexagon gives students a different, simpler perspective of a shape that might previously have seemed inaccessibly complex.
Identifying Shapes By AttributesGet your first grader's geometry knowledge into shape with this quick quiz on identifying shapes by attributes. After listening to the instructions, kids will click on the shape that best matches the clues given by the narrator. Also good for year three, kids will work with triangles, rectangles, and other shapes.
Lawn GeometryRoly is one hungry cat! In this geometry game, kids must use a grid to split the lawn into equal parts, feeding Roly in the process. Great for visual learners, this game encourages children to explore how to divide a whole into halves, thirds, and quarters. They'll love making Roly munch through the grass, and teachers will love how much fraction practise kids get with this interactive game.
2D and 3D Shape Sort: CarMuggo and Floyd like different shapes! Muggo likes 2D shapes like squares and triangles. Floyd likes 3D shapes like cubes and cylinders. In the game 2D and 3D Shape Sort: Car, first graders and second graders are challenged to help Muggo and Floyd pack the shapes that they like. Kids will practise identifying shapes, using visual attributes to label each shape as two-dimensional or three-dimensional. Bright colors and kid-friendly artwork make this geometry-themed sorting game engaging and fun.
