## Interactive Math Game - Solid Shapes

Put your students' geometry skills to the test as they practice identifying solid shapes in this online math activity from iKnowIt.com! Children will identify a variety of three-dimensional shapes in this geometry game geared toward a fourth grade level. Here are the learning objectives for this interactive math lesson:

• Students will reason with solid shapes and their attributes as they practice identifying the given solid shape.
• Students will identify a pyramid, cube, cone, cylinder, rectangular prism, and more.
• Students will learn to recognize the type and number of faces and vertices for each solid shape.

Questions are presented in multiple-choice format, fill-in-the-blank format, and drag-and-drop format. Students may be asked how many faces a cube has, which shape could be the face of a cone, and which shapes have flat faces and a curved surface, for example. Each math problem is accompanied by colorful pictures that visually depict various solid shapes.

In this interactive geometry lesson, students will have access to a number of helpful tools to make their math practice experience seamless and fun:

• A hint button is available for when children need a little extra help solving a math problem. Students can click on the hint button to view a written or pictorial clue (i.e., "A cylinder has flat faces and a curved surface."), allowing them to solve the problem successfully without revealing the answer too easily.
• A detailed explanation page shows students the right answer each time they give an incorrect response. The answer page includes an easy-to-follow explanation to help children learn from prior mistakes.
• A score-tracker gives students insight into how many points they have achieved by answering math questions correctly.
• A progress-tracker lets students see how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the math lesson.
• The read-aloud feature, indicated by a speaker icon, is accessible for students who wish to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This tool is a helpful resource for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.

All of these features of the I Know It math lessons are designed with your students' math practice experience in mind, in order to help them build confidence and proficiency in foundational elementary math skills.

Geometry

Reason With Shapes And Their Attributes.
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.
