# 23 Geometry Games & Activities Your Students Will Love

Quadrilateral Bingo, fraction War, and more!

Geometry is one of the math units that students and teachers alike look forward to. Shapes, lines, angles, fractions, decimals, and more! There are so many fun activities that introduce concepts and give kids a chance to practice. Introduce your students to these 23 geometry games and activities and make math time the best part of your day.

## 1. Fit shapes together to make other shapes

UseÂ pattern blocksÂ with the free printable cards at the link to get kids playing around with simple geometry. Theyâ€™ll practice recognizing basic shapes and learn they can use some shapes to make new ones.

## 2. Color in a polygon quilt

Players take turns coloring in four connected triangles at a time, earning points for the shape they create. Itâ€™s a fun way to practice polygons.

## 3. Play quadrilateral Bingo

Every square is a rectangle, but not all rectangles are squares. Get a handle on quirky quadrilaterals with this free printable bingo game.

## 4. Learn about shapes with a Geo-board

Geo-boards are an amazing tool for inspiring creative thinking in your students. Use them to let students practice making simple shapes. Or download these free Geo-board activity cards for more challenges.

## 5. Create a quadrilateral family tree

A square is a rectangle but is a rectangle a square? Sometimes itâ€™s hard to know how to classify shapes. This fun activity lets kids explore shape families for deeper understanding.

## 6. Identify 3-D shapes in Mystery Bags

Place a 3-D shape block into each numbered bag. Kids work in groups or on their own to identify each shape only by touch (no peeking!).

## 7. Spin and build cookie fractions

Second grade math students begin working with basic fractions as a part of a whole. This free printable game helps them build those skills.

## 8. Divide Play-Doh shapes into equal shares

Second grade math students begin to work with the concept of fractions by partitioning shapes into equal shares. Play-Doh is perfect for this activity, giving kids hands-on practice in breaking shapes down into pieces.

## 9. Use LEGO bricks to learn fractions

In third grade math, students start learning fractions in earnest. Playing with LEGOs makes it fun! Kids draw cards and use colored bricks to represent the fraction shown. Check out even more ways to useÂ LEGO bricks for math.

## 10. Match up equivalent fractions

Try a different kind of egg hunt to practice equivalent fractions. Write fractions on each half, then have kids find them and make the proper matches. (Make this harder by mixing up the colors!) Check out our otherÂ ways to use plastic eggs in the classroom.

## 11. Give Spoons an equivalent fraction twist

Spoons is a classic and beloved card game where players race to match four-of-a-kind and grab a spoon in each round. In this version, theyâ€™re racing to match equivalent fractions (get some free printable cards to use at the link).

## 12. Declare a fraction war with dominoes

Each student draws a domino and positions it as a fraction. Then they compare the two to see whose is larger. The winning student keeps both dominoes. (See more cool ways to use dominoes for fraction games at the link.)

## 13. Declare a fraction war with cards

War is one of the original math card games, but this version adds a fraction aspect. Students deal two cards, a numerator and denominator, then determine whose fraction is the largest. The winner keeps all four cards, and play continues until the cards are gone. (Click here for more fun and free fraction games.)

## 14. Use playing cards to practice decimal place values

Students take turns drawing cards, competing to build the highest possible number to the thousandths place.

## 15. Have a decimal snowball fight

Each student receives a stack of decimal â€śsnowballs.â€ť They each flip one over and compare their numbers. The student with the larger number keeps both snowballs.

## 16. Play geometry vocabulary Go-Fish

While geometry can be light and fun, the vocabulary understanding needed to fully master geometry is huge! These vocabulary cards will help students master the lingo.

## 17. Play Pick a Polygon

This fun vocabulary geometry game involves drawing a card and properly identifying it. If the card is a polygon, the student gets to keep it. If not, the student must explain why not, remove that card from play and return all of their previously-drawn cards to the bag.

## 18. Use pattern blocks to explore symmetry

Give students a container of pattern blocks, these free symmetry mats, and task cards, and let them explore the concept of symmetry.

## 19. Fold shapes to discover symmetry

Break students into groups, and hand out a series of paper shapes. Challenge each group to experiment with folding their shapes to see which are symmetrical and how many lines of symmetry they have.

## 20. Play geometry Bingo

Fourth grade math students love geometry games as they learn terms like line, ray, and types of angles. This free printable bingo game is a fun way to do it!

## 21. Give students a practical way to use protractors

Use dry erase markers and masking tape to give students lots of angles to explore and measure! If you canâ€™t write on your tables, try using a big piece of butcher paper instead.

## 22. Battle with area and perimeter

Roll the dice to see the dimensions of your next rectangle, then mark it on the board. Try to fill your page completely before your partner does! (Have students write the area and perimeter in each block for practice along the way.)

## 23. Learn about area and perimeter with LEGO bricks

These free, fun cards provide kids with LEGO building challenges that teach them math concepts and higher level thinking at the same time. Learning? Fun? Both!
