This week both Kindergarten and 1st grade began their Geometry units this week. 1st Grade is reviewing plane shapes and how to manipulate plane shapes to make other shapes. Kindergarten is learning names of different plane shapes and their attributes.
The whole class was divided into teams of 3 and went on a scavenger hunt looking for things in the classroom that represented plane shapes. Then they constructed a four corner map showing the items they found.
For math workshop students sorted shapes and picked shapes based on their number of sides in a Geometry Tic-Tac-Toe game.
