What are your students going to make their dads for Fathers Day? Yet another pen holder or a photo mouse pad? I'm a father, and I can guarantee you that those won't fly. Why not make dad a puzzle that he can patchka around with for a few months or years?
This is a "threefer" activity: it gets your kids to work on solving geometry puzzles, which they then make into a Fathers Day gift for that special father in their life, AND it is a "clue game" where kids classify shapes according to their attributes, which includes number of sides, number of different types of angles, whether it is concave or convex, and whether it is symmetrical. Pretty cool, right?
Here's what you get:
• Outlines of the Sphinx Puzzle, a set of 7 geometric shapes which can be cut out and rearranged into hundreds of different shapes, which can be cut out in under 2 minutes.
• Complete "print ready" booklets with 15 different geometric designs that can be created using the Sphinx Puzzle shapes.
• Photographs of the completed Fathers Day puzzles and solution to one of the puzzles.
• Clue game cards that can be filled out by your students for use with the game.
Forget the ties and comb sheaths; this is going to rock everybody's Fathers Day!
