Geometry can seem like a very daunting subject in the high school years. This is why it’s important to introduce geometry concepts in the younger grades, especially upper elementary. This is a great age to get kids excited about math. When you do a geometry unit, your kids can explore, build and play with shapes and hands-on activities.
Math doesn’t have to be boring as it gets harder and reaches the upper grades. Upper Elementary aged kids will have a blast with all of these geometry resources. Many of them have a fun STEM like feel to them as well and don’t even feel like math. These would be fun to do as a separate geometry unit, or to supplement what they are learning.
