New Review Recognizing Geometric Shapes
Young mathematicians explore the beauty of geometry with this cross-curricular math and visual arts lesson. Over the course of four or five days, children observe and discuss the geometric and organic shapes found in two pieces of artwork, before eventually creating there own mobiles that demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge about shapes.
