1st graders love geometry!  Besides the fun projects, they have many opportunities to see math in their everyday lives. Suddenly, a tissue box becomes a rectangular prism or cube and the globe is no longer a globe; it's a sphere.

We engaged in several fun, hands-on activities. We created 2D creatures, fraction creatures and 3D rainsticks:

3D Rainsticks and Writing 

This wonderful writer filled up the backside of his journal paper with details on how to make a rainstick.

Another thing 1st graders hear the weather!  The rainsticks were a huge hit!
