Title – Geo-Mat
By – Kimberley King
Primary Subject – Math
Grade Level – 3-4

  • Preparation: Use permanent marker to draw plane figures on bulletin board paper (approximately 4-6 feet in length).
  • Be sure to include the following:
    line right angle
    rectangle curve
    acute angle circle
    obtuse angle right triangle
    isosceles triangle scalene triangle
    square quadrilateral
    parallelogram equilateral triangle
    parallel lines perpendicular lines
  • Use: The “geo-mat” can be placed on the floor for teaching and reviewing plane figures. Gather a group of no more than 4-5 students around the mat and ask questions such as:
        Can you find a shape that has three sides?
        Put your hand on it…triangle.
      Continue with the questions.
  • SC Curriculum Standards: IA
  • Objectives: The student will demonstrate the ability to follow directions, identify plane figures, and work in groups.
  • Hint: Students need to remove shoes to prevent tearing the paper.
