Primary Math – Geometry and Spatial Reasoning

Hole-Punch Symmetry

Students visualize how paper that has been folded and hole-punched will look when the paper is unfolded.

The Animal Grid Game

Students love this offline coding lesson in which they get to be the zookeeper feeding animals.

Square Tile Grid Symmetry Quick Image

Students have to visualize a series of reflection challenges made of square tiles and recreate them from memory.

Pattern Block Symmetry Quick Image

Students have to visualize a series of reflection challenges made of pattern blocks and recreate them from memory.

Pattern Blocks Quick Image

Students have to visualize a series of challenges made of pattern blocks and recreate them from memory.

Multilink Cube 3D Quick Image

Students have to visualize 2D images of 3D shapes comprised of multilink cubes and recreate them from memory.

Base Ten Block Quick Image

Students have to recreate from memory an image composed of base ten blocks. Then they calculate the sum.

Can You Draw This?

Students recreate an image of a square divided by a series of lines from memory and describe the strategies they used.

Designs and Patterns on Grid

Students learn how to read letter-number coordinates by creating designs and patterns on grid.

Pentomino Battleship

Students practice reading letter-number coordinates by playing a battleship game with a partner.

Perspective Taking

Students learn perspective taking by identifying the top, side, and front view of 3-D figures.

Barrier Game

One student builds a structure and gives instructions to his/her partner to build an identical structure.

Building with the Mind’s Eye

Students visualize and build a figure in their mind's eye. Then they describe it for the class.

Collect the Shapes

Children collect 2D shapes on a grid by giving directional instructions and answering questions on shapes attributes.

The Cube Challenge

In this lesson, students work together to build 21 unique structures out of 3, 4, and 5 unifix cubes. Can you build them all?

Upside Down World

Students work with unifix cubes to rebuild "buildings" that have been turned upside down!

Super Mind

Children are presented with two-dimensional shapes and encouraged to explore the shapes.
