Hands On Geometry

Fourth graders have been really throwing themselves into geometry lately. Ask your 4th grader about the difference between congruent and similar.

In this photo, they are learning about geometric movements called transformations. The girls here are practicing translation (sliding). Ask what the other two movements are. Geometry is definitely a hands-on topic.

Since we group students differently than our regular classroom groups for math, some kids in my class have not gotten to geometry as of this writing.
