|An activity intended to make students more aware of geometric shapes and lines in objects around them. Students were divided into five groups, four to photograph geometric shapes and concepts at home, on the farm, in town, and at the lake, and one group to label the resulting photographs and assemble them in scrapbooks. As students talked about what they might find and, later, what they did find, the photos seemed to humanize geometry. As an added benefit, the resulting scrapbooks became a useful resource to use with future classes.|
