Geometry: Drawing / Constructing Olympic Rings (Construction worksheet + other resources)

Geometry: Drawing / Constructing Olympic Rings (Construction worksheet + other resources)

This is a lesson that I would normally teach before the Olympics or at the end of the year instead of wasting a lesson watching video's or doing other activities. Pupils are not very good at constructions or even using a compass, so this is a way of developing these skills and to do something a bit more cross curricular as well.NOTE: Fee free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

This contains 2 whole lessons on the topics of Bisecting and Construction. It contains starters, plenaries, questions to attempt as well as very clear step by step examples of how to do the various elements required. The lesson objectives are differentiated to show the levels of outcomes. This is a tricky topic to teach and I have found the examples as they are so visual very useful to explaining what the objectives are about. This leads nicely in the topic of LOCI, which can also be found in my resources. The lesson also includes a help sheet, which I have photocopied and laminated to help the least able.

Geometry: Area 7 - Scale Drawing (functional lesson / rich task) + Resources

Geometry: Area 7 - Scale Drawing (functional lesson / rich task) + Resources

This is the last in a 7 lesson series on learning different area rules (extension being circles - teach as a separate series). Comes with additional resources !! This is an excellent lesson built around a rich task with its basis as scale drawing, but with lots of different aspects, including percentages and pie charts. This is an excellent rich task to develop problem solving skills and their functional maths, which is particular important with the new curriculum changes. Lesson 1 - Perimeter of ShapesLesson 2 - Area of RectanglesLesson 3 - Area of TrianglesLesson 4 - Area of QuadrilateralsLesson 5 - Area of TrapezoidsLesson 6 - Compound AreaLesson 7 - Scale Drawing (functional lesson)I have found over the years, that teaching these lessons over more lessons than less pays dividends!! That it is often a subject skirted over quickly and has to be re taught year on year. It is often a subject that even at later grades that pupils struggle over. To address this each of the lessons is very thorough on the different rules, with activities, hand made worksheets that are differentiated with trickier examples with answers, exam questions, problem solving starters and plenaries. I have spent a long time over the years developing lessons to help pupils progress in this area.You can buy this as a BUNDLE at a reduced price!!NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Geometry and Measures Crosswords and Word Searches

Geometric Drawing and Invariance Vocabulary Wordsearch and Crossword.

Geometric Drawing and Invariance Vocabulary Wordsearch and Crossword.

This is a crossword and word search with further shape and measure vocabulary (covering drawing, constructions, symmetry and translations). It is aimed at higher tier students and would be useful as - revision- lesson starter - settling activity- cover work- end of term activity- extension task- literacy support for EAL or SEND students- literacy across the curriculum- assessment for learning or afl taskContains printable pdf and answers for the crossword and wordsearch. For differentiation I have included a wordsearch and a crossword using similar vocabulary. The wordsearch is easier.The learning objective is to introduce or revise shape and measure vocabulary in a fun and relaxing way.This activity could be used at the start of a topic to introduce key vocabulary by having students fill out as much as they can independently and then check their answers and fill in the gaps using the answer sheet provided. Once students have all the answers they can save the crossword to refer to during the course as a useful list of vocab and definitions. This would help students with dyslexia to spell the vocab correctly and would enable all students with high language needs to refer back to the definitions as required to allow them to access later lessons. After filling in the crossword students could be asked to annotate the crossword with examples or mnemonics for the vocab to aid understanding and recall.This activity could also be used for revision where students might complete several crosswords in a lesson or for homework. They would work at their own pace to identify areas where they need focus their revision.This activity is for teachers, tutors, special needs teachers, teaching assistants, after school club organizers and parents or students looking for revision activities.
