Making Shapes

Last week we began wrapping up our two-dimensional geometry unit.  Students demonstrated their understanding of shapes and their characteristics as they built them using everyday materials from our class.  Children had an opportunity to make shapes from yarn, straws and connectors and popsicle sticks, examining and sharing the aspects of each shape with peers and teachers. 

Later students have an opportunity to further explore these and other geometry materials at the creative, puzzle and mathematics centres. 

Shape-making activities would be easy to try at home, using any objects you can find.  Try it out and see how many shapes you can make!
