You Can Cut It: Hands-on Geometry

Learners explore two and three-dimensional objects with a hands-on approach and an element of chance. Groups choose the name of a solid figure from a "hat" and work with that shape. They sketch it, determine the number and shapes of faces, and present their shape to the rest of the class, jigsaw style. They cut foam shapes to explore the properties of the different faces that result.

Lesson Planet does a great job in matching appropriate resources with the lessons I am trying to find. I need things that will make learning real, but at the same time, fun and interesting, and I can always count on Lesson Planet to provide that.
