This page provides samples of 5th Grade Geometry Activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. All files are in PDF format. Sample activities listed in **blue** are available for immediate download. Activities listed in ****grey **are included in our **5th Grade Math Centers** eBook**.**

**Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems**

**5.G.A.1** Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to
define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the
origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point
in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its
coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to
travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second
number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis,
with the conventions that the names of the two axes and the coordinates
correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).**Sample Activities:**

Coordinate Grid Geoboards

Shapes on the Coordinate Plane**Math Read Aloud Task Card:**The Fly on the Ceiling

** Coordinate Grid Exploration

**5.G.A.2 ** Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing
points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret
coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

**Sample Activity:How Many Pages?**

** Ice Cube Melt

** How Many Equivalent Fractions?

**Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties****5.G.B.3 **Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
