GEOMETRY SONGS LYRICS
3D SHAPES SONG
Cylinders look like soda cans.
They’re the shape of pots and pans.
They have two circular bases
that are congruent and parallel faces.
You see cones in construction zones
or when you’re eating ice cream cones.
All points of their circular base meet at
the same point like a party hat!
These are all three-dimensional shapes.
They all have a base and take up space.
Pyramids are what the ancient Egyptians made;
the Mayans and the Aztecs did the same.
They’re made with a polygon at the base
and triangular faces that meet in one place.
Some prisms are rectangular like a room.
Some prisms are triangular like a roof.
Polygons with edges joining at the vertices
make a prism, as you can see!
There’s one special three-dimensional shape.
They’re called spheres, like the planets in outer space.
On sphere’s, there’s no base to be found,
because every sphere is perfectly round!
TYPES OF ANGLES SONG:
Between zero and ninety an angle is acute.
This angle’s small and skinny and kind of cute.
It looks like a V or the top of a Y
or the angles that you see eating pizza or pie.
Angles are all about degrees,
and here’s how to remember them with ease!
Only when an angle measures ninety do we call it right.
You can tell this angle just by sight.
It looks like an L or the corner of a square.
You’re looking at them when you’re walking up the stairs.
Between ninety and one hundred eighty, an angle is obtuse
This angle’s kind of fat; it’s got a big caboose.
It’s like the hands on a clock when it’s quarter to two
or the antlers on the head of a full grown moose.
You’ll find lines that are perpendicular
On a rectangle’s perimeter.
Or let’s break it down even simpler:
They make right angles in particular.
TYPES OF LINES ANIMATED VIDEO FOR CHILDREN:
Parallel lines never meet;
Intersecting lines make v’s;
Perpendicular lines meet at 90 degrees;
Put your hands in the air with me!!
Parallel... intersecting... perpendicular... are rectangular!
Now, let’s talk about detecting
If two lines are intersecting.
It’s the name that we select
If at any point two lines connect.
When lines will never touch, then you can tell
That those two lines are parallel.
Like these telephone wires up above the street,
Parallel lines will never meet.

QUADRILATERALS SHAPES SONG
Parallelograms have two sets of parallel lines.
Trapezoids only have one set at a time.
A rectangle has four right angles.
A rhombus has four sides that are equal.
Squares have four equal sides and four equal angles.
Quadrilaterals have four sides and four angles:
parallelograms, rhombuses, trapezoids, squares, and rectangles.
And if you add the angles inside each of these,
there will be three hundred sixty degrees.
VOLUME FOR CHILDREN in Year 4 and Year 5
To find the volume of a cube,
Side times side times side will tell you:
The number of times a cubic unit
Will be able to fit inside it.
Imagine a cube with edges of three.
Multiply three by three by three to see
It can fit twenty-seven units
...gotta mention that they’re cubic!
When finding volume, don’t forget to mention:
The unit is a cube with three dimensions.
To get a rectangular prism’s volume right:
Length times width... times the height.
Cubic units label three dimensions
When we answer any volume questions.
With the dimensions two, three, and six,
first find the base: that’s length times width.
The base is six cubes; then multiply the height:
36 cubic units fill it up just right!
A solid shape made of more than one prism
Has a volume you can find with this wisdom:
Think of each shape separately
And find the volume of each individually.
Then add the volumes nine and one:
We get ten cubic units and this problem’s done!
