Circle Tree and Area & Perimeter Robots!

 We have been working on our geometry unit in math the past couple weeks, which has been a nice change for my kiddos after all the division! 
One of our lessons was on circles, which we used to create this fabulous circle tree for our door!

The kids drew circles with a compass on green construction paper and then cut them out. Then they drew and labeled the center, a radius, a diameter, and a chord. They also measured the radius and figured out how they could find the length of the diameter without measuring.
After the lesson I had them back their circles on lime green construction paper, which I used to make our tree!

Then, later this week, we made the area and perimeter robots from Ashleigh’s (Ashleigh’s Education Journey) Fun with Perimeter and Area Packet! The kids had SO much fun on their mission to make a robot!!

We have our geometry test next week and then we will be moving on to fractions!
And Hershey bars!
I will be posting about that as soon as we do it! 馃檪

    Love these! I am teaching area and perimeter next week. Since we are switching to common core next year, it's something my kiddos would miss with the way our curriculum is now. I am definitely going to have to make the robots!!

  3. Your tree is super cute!! I love the idea of incorporating art to teach math! My son always has the most fun and retains the most when he does stuff like this in his class. It has been a while since I have had to teach any math – but I will certainly bookmark this for later (-;

    I love how you have made "cute" things- in a way that still makes the kids learn. This is why I love your blog! 馃檪

    If I had a 4th grade teacher like you I probably would like geometry a lot more!

    Hi Molly, I love these ideas/ I’m hoping to make the area robots with my class. I’m just wondering, do you have a link for the letters for the robot display? I love them! Thanks
