  # Sixth Grade Hands-On Activities

• Use normal measurement devices to determine liquid volume, weight and length. Determine area from length measurements.
• Measure angles with a protractor to the nearest degree. Learn to estimate the number of degrees in an angle and check the estimate with a protractor.
• Describe the similarities and differences of plane and solid geometric figures.
• Determine if segments, angles and polygons are congruent or not.
• Use a compass and straight edge to construct the perpendicular bisector of a line segment and construct an angle bisector.
• Draw, make models and classify solid geometric figures such as cylinders, cones, triangular prisms, rectangular prisms and pyramids.
• Collect and graphically display data by using line, bar and circle graphs, stem-and-leaf and box-and-whisker plots.
• Determine and extend numeric and geometric patterns.
• Determine and describe exponents, perfect squares and square roots. Learn to work with zero exponents and negative exponents.
