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.
Perpendicular, intersect, parallel! In this lesson, students work in teams to complete a Frayer Model on each of these terms to become masters of geometry vocabulary. Teach this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson What's My Line?
Some of these ladybugs are symmetrical—can you tell which ones? Kindergarten students can practice identifying shapes and extending patterns while learning about symmetry in this fun geometry worksheet!
