Last week in math we began our study of geometric shapes. The first week we covered our 2-D shapes. This week, we are discussing 3-D shapes. In the weeks to come, we will also discuss lines of symmetry and congruency.
To wrap up our week long study, the students went on a 2-D shape scavenger hunt on the school playground. The class was divided into groups and each group was responsible for finding nine different shapes. They used iPods to take pictures of their findings. Within the next few days, each group will create a slide show with the shapes they found. As the videos are created, the students will post them to their individual blogs. Be sure to check all their hard work out and don’t forget to comment!
