Fourth graders will discover the building blocks of geometry in this unit: points, lines, line segments and rays. Students will explore the properties of different shapes, including symmetry, parallel and perpendicular lines, and 900 angles. Students will apply their understanding as they learn to sort shapes based on these properties.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities
Spot the Lines!
In year five maths, a line isn't just, you know...a line. Learn the difference between lines, line segments, and rays in this maths game disguised as art practise. As students go through Penelope's drawing, they'll spot the lines as the narrator calls them out and click on them once they find them. Once they're done, they'll have the full picture of geometry basics!
Lines, Line Segments, and Rays
Students will love practising their newfound skill in drawing line segments and rays after mastering this exercise.
Classifying Shapes
For students who learn by doing, this exercise will make learning different shapes’ classifications much easier.
Lines of Symmetry
There are various ways to determine whether or not an object is symmetrical, and this object points each one out.
Classifying Angles
Students will become experts at classifying angles after this exercise teaches them the various types.
City Building: Missing Area Factor
Space control to explorer: your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a colony on the moon. Kids must determine the missing dimension to create a city for the newest moon inhabitants. Perfect for practising area calculations, this game helps players understand the relationship between area and length.
Area of a Rectangle
This exercise will simplify the process by which students calculate the area of a rectangle.
Perimeter of a Rectangle
Students will get the bigger picture after they run through this exercise on calculating the perimeter of a rectangle.
