Cylinder lesson plan with activities, posters and a worksheet

This no-prep cylinder lesson plan will save you time, just print it and that’s it. It’s a 5E lesson plan with structured activities for the discovery of attributes that make a cylinder. It follows the 5E lesson plan template with structured activities and has a worksheet at the end.

Cylinder Lesson Plan for Teachers

There are questions in this cylinder lesson plan for you to ask your students as they are guided through the activities in small groups. These questions will encourage critical thinking and help your students connect the concept of cylinders to the real world. I used a transportation theme for the real world connection aspect and used cylinders found in the home for the summative assessment. The worksheet comes with an answer key for you.
