3rd Grade Geometry
This page provides examples of 3rd Grade Geometry Activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. All activities on this page are suitable for use in Math Centers, small
group or whole class settings. Instructions for each task are typed in
large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to
work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the
task. All files for the geometry activities listed are in .pdf format
and can be accessed using Adobe Reader. For 4th and 5th grade Geometry Activities see the links below.
3rd Grade Geometry Activities
Reason with shapes and their attributes
3.G1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g.,
rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having
four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category
(e.g. quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as
examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do
not belong to any of these subcategories.
2D Shape Sort
3.G2 Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the
area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example,
partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of
each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
