Spring Break. Geometry is a unit that allows for many hands-on activities. Fifth graders
created bi-lateral bunnies by following careful directions and cutting out speciﬁc polygons. Later they also had a chance to see math in real life by measuring various
boxes and items in the classroom and calculating the volume.
On a bright sunny day, sixth graders were able to get outside to apply their
knowledge of proportions. By measuring a friendʼs height and shadow, they were able
to calculate the actual height of large objects by measuring their shadows.
Students in seventh grade became the experts in geometry. Each student
studied a various topic and created a Keynote presentation to teach the rest of the
class. They did a great job incorporating various learning styles as well!
Lastly, eighth graders became authors and illustrators to write their own
childrenʼs story about geometry. Each student created an inventive story using twenty
geometry terms, illustrated their pages, and then shared them with the ﬁrst grade. It
was great to see how students put their creativity and intellect to use!
