#### Grade Level

3-5

#### Content Focus

Geometric Shape and Measurement

#### Overview

As students develop their ability to describe, analyze, compare, and classify two-dimensional shapes, they progress through a series of geometric thinking levels. Come examine the geometry expectations in Grades 3-5 and the experiences students need to expand their understanding of geometric properties in order to develop generalizations about classes of shapes. Leave with ideas to utilize in your classroom and share with colleagues.

#### Goals

- Expand understanding of geometric properties and their relationships in order to develop generalizations about classes of shapes.
- Deepen understanding of the measurement process and how it applies to the attributes of measure students work with in Grades 3-5.
- Make connections between geometric measurement ideas and other mathematical domains.
