Yesterday we had our review for geometry, and since there are so many fun, engaging activities for students to do with geometry, we tried a couple of them out!
One of the main focuses of our geometry chapter is solid figures, so I had my students work in groups and each choose a different solid figure that we had learned. They had to choose solid figures that did not have curved surfaces.
Once each student picked their figure, they had to come up and tell me how many vertices (gum drops) and edges (pretzels) that they needed to make it!
Then the fun began!
They turned out really great and the kids had so much fun making them!
And of course when they were done…
they had no problem “destroying” and eating them!
Afterwards we “took our learning outside” thanks to Jennifer Runde’s idea!
My kiddos made angles and polygons in the grass using their bodies!
Here is a rhombus that some of my students made!
Looking forward to our field day on Friday!!!
