Big Idea:Putting It Altogether! That is the hope today as students use their understanding of composing and decomposing shapes to cover a given area. Today's lesson is bringing together many of the geometric skills from previous lessons.
Big Idea:Clean Up this Mess! The classroom shapes are in one big heap. Students will work in teams to come up with a way to sort the shapes by attributes and create a visual representation to model their thinking
Big Idea:La, La, La, La, La, sing a happy song! You will be signing like a Smurf as students use their new founded knowledge of shape characteristics to participate in a whole group discussion and to successfully participate in geometric learning.
Big Idea:WHat better way to get to know your students than with a 1:1 interview. Today you will interview each student on their knowledge of triangles and their ability to separate them from other shapes.
