Zome System Lesson Plans

If you haven't yet been introduced to the Zome System, you're in for a treat. Your child will learn how to build anything from a simple geometric shape (triangle) to the more complex icosahedron. They will learn simple concepts and terms such as edges, vertices, and faces and more complex topics like recognizing the Fibonacci sequence and discovering common areas where this can be found in plants. The figures are fun to construct and thought provoking to discuss, as they help the student to develop geometric skills. Lesson plans are well laid out and superbly organized for the teacher. Each one is presented with an Objective, Prerequisite Skills required, Time Needed, Materials Needed, Procedure for lesson plan, Assessment for the teacher, which National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards were addressed, and a Transfer Possibilities area which presents different areas where the topic can be further explored. The lessons are categorized into three groups: 36 Lessons of Basic Concepts (Grades 1-3), 25 Lessons of Intermediate Concepts (Grades 4-8), and 3 Lessons of Advanced Concepts (Grades 9-12). However, it is recommended that even kids of high school age understand the Basic and Intermediate concepts before moving on to the Advanced. The lesson plans are in binder page form and include 11 pages of Glossary terms. The recommended Zome kit to purchase with the Lesson Plans is the Zometool Creator 1 Kit (242 pieces - see description in our Not Just For Fun section) for 1-3 students (good for home use). ~ Carl
