What is a Geoboard?
A geoboard is a square board, usually made from wood or plastic, that has raised pegs every square inch. The pegs are used to hook colorful rubber bands so that students can create a design, pattern, or a picture. Geoboards are a fantastic tool for hands-on math learning centers. Our geoboard printables are sized for 6″x6″ geoboards, which have 5 pegs across and 5 pegs down (25 pegs total). We recommend using a transparent geoboard for younger students so they can place them directly over their geoboard mats. This is great for visualizing the exact placement of each colored rubber band to compare their work as they build.
In each of our geoboard activity packs, you’ll find differentiated learning resources. For each thematic set, you’ll receive the following activity pages (examples pictured above):
- Geoboard Math Mat: This geoboard mat tasks students with creating a picture, then adding more bands to create the second picture. Students answer basic counting and addition problems.
- Geoboard Shape Mat: This geoboard mat tasks students with creating the more difficult picture, then coloring the black line example. Students are then asked to identify the different shapes they see.
- Create, Color, & Draw Activity Pages: Students are asked to create a picture, color the black-line example, and then to copy the drawing onto the blank grid. These are great for older students who do not need the full geoboard mat.
- Geoboard Task Cards: These colorful task cards are great for creating your own math centers. Students chose a card, create the picture and answer the question.Follow-up with one of the worksheets below.
- Geoboard of the Day (Easy Follow-Up Worksheet): This simple version asks students to choose one of their pictures to draw, and answer the questions. Questions cover counting and shapes.
- Geoboard of the Day (Hard Follow-Up Worksheet): This harder version asks students to draw, write, count, tally, graph, compare, and find the shapes. This is great for expanding key math skills.
- 5×5 Geoboard (transparent board not required, but helpful)
- Colorful Rubber Bands (Rainbow Loom Bands work nicely)
Geoboard Learning Center Setup
Once you’ve decided to add geoboards to your math rotations, you’ll want to decide how you will organize your supplies. We recommend storing your rubberbands in this handy craft supply box. You can store your task cards in these fun photo boxes, and you can store your Geoboard Mats in a 3-ring binder. Simply slide the pages into page protectors and students will be able to use these sets for years to come.
