Geometric Reasoning

Flower Power

Student use geometric shapes to create flower patterns, like florists at a local flower shop.

By: Alexa Basinger, Virginia Cottam, & Keely Dunavin

Shapes & Pizza

Students use Geometric Shapes Building Set to construct 2-D and 3-D geometric shapes based on things they see at the Pizza Parlor (a local pizza restaurant).

By: Allie Blake, Rachel Bossong, & Luke Saunders

Building with Shapes!

Students will use various shapes in order to build a structure of their choice and personal interest, including but not limited to, houses, castles, etc. Students will then break down their structures and group shapes into categories as they see fit, using 2D and 3D shape manipulatives.

Playground Design

Students use explore different ways to design and build a playground.

By: Hazel Weatherby & Macey Wolfenbarger

Building a Playground

Students take the basics of geometry and transform it into a playground that includes multiple structures made of shapes.

By: Kenzie Justice, Kat Steffen, and Katherine Thompson

Building a Community

Children will come to an understanding of the mathematical principles used in design thinking (constructive play) and foundational mathematical skills while construction building for their community.

Pumpkin Pi

Students find the “fattest” pumpkin using string, scissors, and a ruler. They will also have the chance to find Pi.

By: Maddie Erber, Amanda Hackett, & Katelyn Wright

Construction Site

Children use shapes to build a construction site or other buildings around their school.

By: Emily Dodson, Bri McCurry, & Carrigan Robichaud

New Addition to the Animal Center

Students use their knowledge of perimeter and area to design a new addition to Young Williams Animal Center.

By: Monica Beaumont & Brianna Watkins

Shape Building

Using the Geometric Shapes Building Set, children make a 2D or 3D geometric structure or shape (e.g. square pyramid, cube, triangle, square, pentagonal pyramid, etc.). They then determine how many vertices and edges their structure has.
