Last week my class was working with geometric shapes. They did a great job keeping up with their flip-books and taking notes.
After learning the overwhelming number of ways to classify and name shapes I put them to the test! The students got together in partners and created whatever shape I called out using their handy-dandy peg boards and rubber bands.
-----Yes, you read right, rubber bands in the hands of eighteen 5th graders. I was just as skeptical as you are but not a single one flew! Who knew? I am so proud of how well my students worked together.
Just a few of their masterpieces!
