Shapes to Explore and the students want more. Geometry is such a fun hands on unit. The students are completely engaged in the activities and learning without even knowing it.
Here is a great little poem I found on Pinterest from Caitlin at Kinder Garden.
After exploring the 3D shaped manipulatives, students traced around each shape and labeled them.
Next up a little treat.
Marshmallows and Toothpicks. ( The round toothpicks work better. They are a little sturdier)
I gave each student a cup of mini-marshmallows and a hand full of toothpicks.
Directions: Explore and Create.
