Strand: GEOMETRY (4.G.)

Draw and identify lines and angles, as well as classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles (Standards 4.G.1-3)

Standard 4.G.1

Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, and obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

  • Angles (elementary)
    This lesson is designed to help students learn about classifying angles by their measure.
  • Floor Tiles
    This lesson will help students identify and examine symmetry in geometric figures as well as describe and classify polygons.
  • Geometry (4.G) - Fourth Grade Core Guide
    The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for Fourth Grade Mathematics - Geometry (4.G)
  • Geometry of Letters
    The purpose of this task is for students to analyze the geometry of letters. Letters provide a good opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of what constitutes a 2-dimensional geometric figure.
  • Grade 4 Mathematics Module 4: Angle Measure and Plane Figures
    This 20-day module introduces points, lines, line segments, rays, and angles, as well as the relationships between them. Students construct, recognize, and define these geometric objects before using their new knowledge and understanding to classify figures and solve problems. With angle measure playing a key role in their work throughout the module, students learn how to create and measure angles, as well as create and solve equations to find unknown angle measures. In these problems, where the unknown angle is represented by a letter, students explore both measuring the unknown angle with a protractor and reasoning through the solving of an equation. Through decomposition and composition activities as well as an exploration of symmetry, students recognize specific attributes present in two-dimensional figures. They further develop their understanding of these attributes as they classify two-dimensional figures based on them.
  • Grade 4 Unit 6: Geometry (Georgia Standards)
    In this unit, students will draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines, identify and classify angles and identify them in two-dimensional figures, distinguish between parallel and perpendicular lines and use them in geometric figures and identify differences and similarities among two dimensional figures based on the absence or presence of characteristics such as parallel or perpendicular lines and angles of a specified size.
  • IXL Game: Geometry: Parallel, perpendicular, intersecting
    This game helps fourth graders draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, and perpendicular and parallel lines. This is just one of many online games that supports the Utah Math core. Note: The IXL site requires subscription for unlimited use.
  • Measuring Angles
    The purpose of this task is to gain experience drawing and measuring angles, developing an understanding of the additive structure of angles.
  • Tessellate!
    This lesson and activity will help the student understand how to classify two-dimensional figures based on properties. The student manipulates shapes to create now polygons.
  • What's the Point?
    The purpose of this task is to use what students intuitively understand about connecting points or "dots" with lines to generate a discussion about what points are and how they should be represented.
