Be sure to check out some of the activities that I've listed below:

 

 

 

Area & Perimeter Game -This activity does a great job of giving you a good overview about how to calculate the area and perimeter of basic shapes.

 

 

 

Multiplication:

 

Turning Repeated Addition Sentences into Multiplication Sentences -See if you can correctly rewrite each repeated addition sentence into a multiplication sentence.

 

Turning Arrays into Multiplication Sentences -One model that we use when exploring the world of multiplication is the Array Model.  Test your skills at reading arrays and see if you can create the correct multiplication math sentence that each array is modeling.

 

Multiplication Bingo Six-in-a-Row! -This is yet another great way to work on your math facts.  This is a game that I've developed.  For this version, you will need 2 six-sided dice.

 

 

Geometry of Quadrilaterals:

 

Exploring 2-D and 3-D Shapes -This website does a good job of providing an overview about 2-D and 3-D shapes.

 

Quadrilateral Shape Game- How well do you know your quadrilaterals?  See if you can get a perfect score in this activity!

 

Properties of Parallelograms -This website goes way beyond third grade geometry! However, it does a great job of giving you a very complete overview of what makes a parallelogram a parallelogram!

 

Interactive Quadrilaterals -Drag the dots in any of the 4 corners of these quadrilaterals and see how your movement changes the shape and the angles of the corners.

 

Quadrilateral Quest - As we've discovered in class, there are some really fine points in the definitions of different quadrilaterals.  For example, a square is a special kind of rectangle.  It is a parallelogram that also has 90 degree angles, but unlike most rectangles, ALL of its sides are equal or congruent.  Although this activity was designed for older students, see how well you can do with selecting the correct quadrilaterals that fit each description!

 

Carroll Diagram Shape Sort -Be sure to click on the "2 Criteria" Carroll Diagrams and see if you can correctly sort various shapes by 2 different properties.  When you have finished placing all shapes where you think that they belong, be sure to click the check button.  If no shapes get placed back down in the shape bank down below, then you have correctly sorted all of the shapes by their 2 criteria.

 

 

Question- What makes a Polygon a Polygon?

 

Play this activity to find out:

 

Polygon or Not? -This website does a great job of summarizing the properties that all polygons share. See how many shapes you can click and drag into the correct basket as the shapes go flying by on the screen.

 

Question- What do we call lines that are not parallel?

 

Play this activity to find out:

 

Line Shoot Arcade Challenge -This is a fun activity that tests your ability to correctly pick out points, line segments, lines, rays, intersecting lines, and parallel lines.
