## Caught in the Nets

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

This is a level 3 geometry strand activity from the Figure it Out series.

## Crazy Cubes

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

This is a level 3 geometry activity from the Figure it Out series.

## Volumes of Cubes

• Secondary activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level Four

These exercises, activities and games are designed for students to use independently or in small groups to practise number properties. Some involve investigation (see Related Resources) and may become longer and more involved with subsequent recording/reporting.

## Russian Boxes

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Five

In this unit a number of small boxes are produced (by folding), that fit inside one another like Russian dolls. Lengths are measured and areas and volumes are calculated in order to make scale comparisons.

## New Kids on the Block

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level One

This unit is suited to a small class at a school where large building blocks and wood off-cuts are readily available. Asking students to construct objects affords a prime time to observe and listen to their language as they build. Using blocks is a powerful medium for improving students' perception of objects and encourages creativity.

## Shape Explorers

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level One

In this unit students identify attributes of 2D shapes and describe sides and corners of these shapes. They are identifying and classifying shapes by name, number of sides and corners and will describe similarities and differences between shapes.
