Fun real world applications of basic geometry to get students thinking and cooperating. Includes scoring and common core alignment pages. Also includes instructional handouts in both color and line-art so pick which you prefer. Or put just enlarge one up on the board.
These projects would be great introductions to the year, or day before break, or day after test ‘brain breaks’.
Each sheet can be printed and cut in half to save paper. If you wish you may print the scoring on the back of each ½ sheet or use different scoring, or not score and simply talk about the projects.
Each project should take about 1-2 class periods or about 40 minutes to 2 hours, If you ask the students to make two models (one triangle and one quadrangle) or to sketch in 2D first it could take longer.
