Subject: Re: Teaching geometry

What sorts of activities are you presenting to your students? Geometry topics
can often be taught using constructive activities. Do you have hands-on
materials to use for geometry instruction? Have you had your students explore
shapes by actually holding them and comparing them?  Have they had a chance
to take a stroll and look for shapes in buildings, or in cut up fruit? My
elementary students enjoy using geoboards to create different figures, and
then describe them to others to see if they can guess what is on the
geoboard.
