Geometry Math Games

Instructor: Shelby Golden
Introduce some fun into your classroom with games that focus on geometry. Find out how these activities can help your students and discover additional resources that you can use in the classroom.

Geometry Scavenger Hunt

You can have your students play this game over a weekend or on an evening during the week. Make sure your students are familiar with geometric shapes and then instruct them to take as many pictures as possible of examples of these shapes in the real world using their phones or a camera. The student with the most examples wins the game.

Students can review a number of different shapes in's Fundamental Geometry course.


This activity requires you to pick something for your students to design, perhaps a pillow or a phone. You then give them a set size that the item must be. It might need to have a perimeter of 20, or an area of 24. Divide your students into groups and have them come up with as many possible shapes as they can in a set amount of time. The group with the most shapes wins.

Before students get going with this activity, they can look over the Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles and Practice Making Geometric Constructions with Tools lessons. Perimeter and area lessons could also be helpful.

Geometry Jeopardy

Divide students into teams to encourage all your students to participate in this game. You will need to set up the answers and the questions before class to make playing this game efficient. You can write the answers on cards and tape them to a white board. Assigning different point values to harder questions can help keep the game competitive. Students will have to answer questions about geometric shapes and formulas to win points, and the group with the most points after all questions have been answered wins the game.

The lesson on solving geometry problems through visualization could help students come up with answers in this game faster.
