A Sixth Grade Window

"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows." ~Sydney J. Harris

Beginning Construction

To investigate geometric concepts, we are building a city.  Each group builds a different section of a city and must incorporate many geometric concepts including lines, angles, polygons, polyhedrons, non-polyhedrons and more!  The city will look really cool when we are finished because parts of the city are 3-dimensional.

Please take a moment to answer our new poll on the right– we are going to add the data to our city project.

We also added a new book, “Because of Mr. Terupt” by Rob Buyea to our Shelfari on the left…we latched on to this book after reading the first line.  The first sentence starts out “It’s our bad luck to have teachers in this world,…”  What?!?  The first chapter definitely has our attention.

Students – check out this video that Pierson and I made to help us review some basic geometric ideas that we talked about yesterday.  We are going to be adding these concepts to our city today! :)  You should have these mastered!
