Shapes Museum

How can we show others that shapes are all around us?

Project Summary

In this project, students learn about the different geometric shapes in the world around them (e.g., rectangles, squares, trapezoids, etc.). They conduct observations, both at home and in their school environment, of everyday items and structures to identify how shapes exist in our world. Using this data, students will create museum exhibits with a small team. Through a combination of photographs and art, their exhibits will serve to educate others on the attributes of shapes and how one might encounter them in the world.

As an extension, students might develop interactive exhibits or games to teach others about the shape attributes and concepts. These could include sorting, matching, concentration/memory games, etc.
