Fill It UpAdd to list Details
Players take turns adding shapes made of three squares to a grid. They try to fit their shapes on the grid in a way that blocks the other player.
Geometry and Spatial Relations: Sidewalk CapersAdd to list Details
In this math lesson, learners use a variety of manipulatives to explore spatial relationships of squares and their transformations.
Dots to SquaresAdd to list Details
As learners play this strategy game, they develop understanding of squares, area, and perimeter. On each turn, a player draws a line between two dots next to each other on the grid.
Incredible Shrinking ShapesAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners get hands-on experience with ratios and scaling while making their own jewelry out of recycled plastic containers.
Step Into Cyberspace
In this activity, learners discover that they can modify a regular piece of paper so that it's large enough for them to walk through!
Number Sense and Computation: Soak It UpAdd to list Details
In this math lesson, learners compare products to determine the best product.
Construction and DestructionAdd to list Details
In this three/four-day lesson, learners calculate perimeters and areas and draw the castle plan to scale.
Beyond Dominoes: PolyominoesAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners add squares to paper dominoes to make polyominoes.
Arctic Sea Ice
In this activity, learners explore how the area of Arctic sea ice has changed over recent years. First, learners graph the area of Arctic sea ice over time from 1979 to 2007.
Proportionality: The X-Plane GenerationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners build a 1:140 "scale model" of NASA's X-33 Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Technology Demonstrator, and investigate how the model dimensions compare to the real vehicle.
How Big is SmallAdd to list Details
In this classic hands-on activity, learners estimate the length of a molecule by floating a fatty acid (oleic acid) on water.
Castle BasicsAdd to list Details
In this four-day lesson, learners identify three-dimensional forms in castle design, research different parts of the castle with a focus on their uses, and design and enlarge a banner for the great ha
Geometry and Algebra: The Future Flight EquationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners discover how NASA engineers develop experimental aircraft.
Giant Museum: Create a Scale ModelAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will predict the size of a giant scale model of a comb or other rectangular object, then make one. If you tripled the size of a dollar bill, could you sit on it?
Twelve at a TimeAdd to list Details
As learners play this game, they build skills in area, perimeter, multiples and factors. They take turns making rectangles with 12 squares on the grid.
In this experiment, learners examine how pressure affects water flow. In small groups, learners work with water and a soda bottle, and then relate their findings to pressure in the deep ocean.
Six Squares: Geometry and DesignAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners take a turn contributing a closed figure made of six squares to a large grid; each must be different from all the others on the grid so far.
The Right FitAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners trace their hands and estimate the number of beans that can fit into their hand tracings. Then, learners glue the beans to the tracing to test out their estimations.
More Bubbles!Add to list Details
In this math activity, learners make their own bubble wands and determine if the size of the wand affects the number of bubbles it produces.
Family ReunionAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners combine counting, area and perimeter concepts as they prepare the seating arrangement for a family reunion dinner.
