This is a project I usually do in the winter right after Christmas break to ease us into school again. It's a FUN project that allows students to use their creativity while exploring new/old geometry concepts.
- 1 week (or more)
- Intersecting, Parallel & Perpendicular Lines
- Acute, Right, Obtuse & Straight Angles
The first two days are spent working on the Geo-Map and the last two days are spent working on the Geo-Bug. Their only homework during this time is to work on these projects so that they are AWESOME on Friday.
Students will design a city that incorperates many 2-D geometric properties such as lines and polygons. Have students draw their whole city in pencil first and then color it.
Students will design a 3-D geometry bug based on polyhedra that has been covered. Students will give the bug a name, describe its features and habitat.
|"Geopillar" circa 2010|
Uses spheres, trapezoidal wings, rectangular prisms for legs and triangular prisms for antenna
Directions for Geo-Bug and Geo-Map: $4
I hope this is a great project for your classroom! I know my students LOVE this one and it is anticipated every year from the start of school!
