					                                        Test Summary
Grade Level: 4th

Concept: Geometric Shapes and Angles

Common Core Standards:

      4.G.1. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and
       perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

      4.G.2. Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or
       perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize
       right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

      4.G.3. Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the
       figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-
       symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry

Flesch Reading Level:

      Entire test: 4.4
      Test directions: 3.8

       I believe it will take my students 45 minutes to an hour to complete this test. I had
three different colleagues take my test. The average amount of time it took for them was
about 15 minutes. This is material that they should be familiar with because it is based on
fourth grade information so it shouldn’t take them as much time as my students. I added on
another 30 to 45 minutes for my students to take the test.

Lit Connections:

      “Shapes” by David Kirby
      “Let’s Fly A Kite” by Stuart J. Murphy

Lesson Ideas:

      Use the construction paper manipulatives to introduce angles to students. Have them
       explore what obtuse, acute and right angles look like and trace them. Use protractors
       to measure them. Have students hold up the manipulatives to assess that they know
       what each angle looks like.
   Use the book “Shapes” to introduce polygons. Have the students explore these shapes
    using pattern blocks after reading it aloud. Have them trace the shapes and label each
    one.
   Use construction paper to fold into different types of polygons. Have students label
    them with sharpies and hang around the room.
   Use some of the activities in the book “Shapes” to further explore shapes and angles.
   Go on a shape and angle hunt through the school and playground to find real-life
    examples of each.
   Read the book “Let’s Fly A Kite” to introduce symmetry. Have the students create their
    own kites using symmetry.
   Go on a symmetry hunt around the school
   Bring in real-life examples of pictures and logos that show each type of symmetry.

          Draw and measure acute, obtuse and right angles
          Recognize a line of symmetry
          Draw turn symmetry using a pattern block




      *Take your time and read each direction carefully.
    You can do this!! Take a deep breath and begin……..

      Choose a pattern block and trace it below. Label the face on the shape. (4 points)




3. What is an edge:
   ________________________________________________________________________



      Choose a pattern block and trace it below. Label an edge on the shape. (4 points)




                                                                                  12 points
4. Circle the polygons below: (5 points)




5. Choose three different pattern blocks (12 points)
    Trace them below

    Write regular or irregular to show which shapes are regular polygons or irregular
      polygons
    Trace the parallel lines in blue colored pencil and the perpendicular lines in red
      colored pencil in every shape.




                                                                                 17 points
6. Use the construction paper to form an acute angle. Trace the acute angle below.
   Measure the angle using a protractor and record it. (3 points)




7. Use the construction paper to form an obtuse angle. Trace the obtuse angle below.
   Measure the angle using a protractor and record it. (3 points)




8. Use the construction paper to form a right angle. Trace the right angle below. Measure
   the angle using a protractor and record it. (3 points)




                                                                                 9 points
9. Look at the pictures below. Decide which pictures show line symmetry and circle them.
   Draw a line through the pictures to show the symmetry. (6 points)




10. Choose a pattern block. Trace the pattern block to show turn symmetry. Draw lines
    through the shape to show the symmetry. (6 points)




                                                                                12 points
