In this 8 lesson course, learners will work with early elementary level (1st and 2nd grade) geometry skills. Students will learn to define geometry vocabulary and apply them to shapes, use them in creating and talking about composite shapes, decomposing composite shapes, and to discuss shapes and vocabulary by comparing and contrasting. The study of geometry helps learners increase spatial understanding, build thinking skills, enhance 3-D thinking, and helps to connect the left and right...
Students will be introduced to the geometry vocabulary 2D shape, 3D shape, open, closed, side, vertex, face, composite shape, attribute, equal shares, half/halves, fourth/quarter, third, area. Students will be able to create (compose) 2D and 3D shapes. Students will be able to decompose composite 2D and 3D shapes. Students will be able to identify and discuss the attributes of shapes. Students will be able to divide shapes into halves, quarters, and thirds and use this vocabulary to talk about different portions.
Homework will be assigned throughout the course. Any homework is optional but encouraged as it is designed to help practice and reinforce the skills and concepts taught throughout the course. Homework may include worksheets, projects, and games.
Optional supplies include a geoboard with bands, pattern blocks, solid shapes, paper bad pencil, whiteboard and markers, 2-colored discs/counters, dice.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
