Third Graders start Geometry
Geometry is the new focus for third grade students in Mrs. Amanda Pals’ classroom! Students are learning about lines, line segments, rays, parallel lines, and intersecting lines. This week they have been using straws and twist ties to explore making different types of triangles and quadrilaterals (quadrangles). Students will be assessed on the following skills during this unit: finding the perimeter of polygons, categorizing quadrilaterals based on attributes, and drawing examples and non-examples of specific quadrilaterals. The students are loving their Geometry unit!
