3-D Solid Figures Marshmallow Activity

3-D Figures and Marshmallows
 
 
My students love geometry, and I do too.  I wanted to share a couple of fun activities we did recently. For sarters, they got to design a net and then turn it into the 3-D figure.  You probably have these outlines in your math teacher resource books. Here are a couple of samples.




Next, they were able to build 3-D figures using marshmallows and toothpicks.  They always love this activity.  I will include a picture, and then there is a link to the skill sheet I made to go along with the activity.  You can get this from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  On this sheet, they write the vertices, edges, and faces for the figures they build. Your students will love this!


Click below to get the details for this activity sheet.

FREE Types of Triangles Game

3 Types of Triangles

Equilateral
Scalene
Isosceles

I swear...
I never spell isosceles correctly the first time.

I put together a fun and easy dice game for the three types of triangles. It is a B*a*S*i*C  game, but it serves the purpose of reinforcing these three triangles. Yes, I know you can have an acute, right, and obtuse triangle, too, but this game doesn't cover those. Oh well.

This will work perfectly as a math center activity.

If you would like to try it with your students, print it for FREE.  Just click below.

Figurative Language Activities

Figurative Language Activities

We have spent the last couple of weeks studying figurative language, and my students have had so much fun.  It really is a fun topic to teach!  One of our class activities has been the making of a figurative language mini book.  As a new type of figurative language was introduced, the students added the definition, example, and an illustration to their booklet.  I don't know about your kids, but mine always like to make little books. 

We have covered many types of figurative language, but one activity in particular I wanted to share with  you is on Idioms.  Are you familiar with the books My Mama Likes to Say, My Teacher Likes to Say, and My Daddy Likes to Say by Denise Brennan-Nelson?  If not, you have got to use them when you cover Idioms.  Plus, I found a great packet to go along with idioms that was put out by the publisher of the books.  It's free, so click HERE to get that. 

In my store, I also have resources to go along with your figurative language unit.

Here is a set of figurative language posters.  I use these to project on the SmartBoard when introducing a new type of figurative language.  You could easily just print them out and use them for display on a bulletin board.


I also made a figurative language game.  Visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store for all the details.  Your students are sure to have fun playing this as a literacy center.



Here are a few pictures from some of our figurative language lessons.





The picture below is an alliteration number line.  Each students was given a number, and they had to write an alliteration that went along with the beginning sound of the number they were given.  They looked really cute hanging in order out in the hallway.  I also hung some other examples of alliteration around the posters.

Lewis and Clark Activity

Lewis and Clark Activity

If you are like me, you are always looking for ways to integrate the subjects of social studies and science into your reading and writing activities.  We have been studying Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their expedition to the Pacific Ocean.  Of course, Sacagawea was along for a good portion of the trip, too.  Because we know so much about their journey due to the journals they kept, I thought it would be neat for the kids to write from the perspective of one of the three people and recount some of the adventures, discoveries, and hardships they faced.  Plus, I found the coolest extra-large journal-looking paper at the Dollar Store, so it made for a fun activity.  Even fourth graders love it when you pull out cool writing paper! Most wrote more than would fit on the journal  paper, so they had to write some on notebook paper and staple it to the journal sheet.They look great hanging out in the hall.  Here is a peek
