    We start our unit on geometry on Monday. If you have any activities for Basic / Solid shapes, measurement to the inch, 1/2 inch, 1/4 inch, elapsed time, area and perimeter, or types of triangles and circles I would greatly appreciate it.

    Shape Up

    Did you ever read the book "Shape Up!" by David A. Adler? Students create triangles with pretzels and make polygons out of cheese.
