Strand: GEOMETRY (3.G)

Reason with shapes and their attributes (Standards 3.G.1–2).

Standard 3.G.1

Understand that shapes in different categories (for example, rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (for example, having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (for example, quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

In this lesson the student is introduced to parallelograms, rectangles, and trapezoids and practices creating various types of quadrilaterals.
• Floor Tiles
This lesson will help students identify and examine symmetry in geometric figures as well as describe and classify polygons.
• IXL Game: Geometry: Count and compare sides, edges, faces, and vertices
This game helps third graders understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes. This is just one of many online games that supports the Utah Math core. Note: The IXL site requires subscription for unlimited use.
• Perimeter
This lesson plan and activities will help students understand the concept of perimeter.
• Sets and The Venn Diagram (Beginner)
By introducing students to the idea of a set, this lesson will help students learn about the vocabulary of sets and Venn diagrams, as well as how to arrange things in a Venn diagram.
• Sets and the Venn Diagram
This lesson is designed to help students understand the ideas surrounding sets and Venn diagrams.
• USBE Core Guide for Domain: Geometry (3G1)
This math guide provides academic vocabulary, instructional strategies, teacher resources, and assessment tasks for the Geometry domain.
• Venn Diagram Shape Sorter
This lesson is designed to introduce young students to the concept Venn diagrams and explore different kinds.
