5th Grade Unit 5 – Geometry


Unit Overview

Content Focus –

Students work translating between 2-D and 3-D shapes, structuring rectangular prisms and determining volume.

Looking Back…

This unit builds on work students have done for several years involving 2-D figures.  They build upon that knowledge as they refine their understanding and means of classifying these figures.

Looking Forward…

This unit provides the building blocks for students to understand a variety of formulas for calculating measures and developing detailed classifications of a variety of shapes.
