Students find and photograph examples of Geometry terms represented in the world (acute angle, perpendicular lines, isosceles triangle, vertical angles, etc.) List of terms is editable so you can adapt it to include the terms that you have covered in class. In this project, students compile their photos into an album or scrapbook of Geometry in their life.
Zip file includes a PDF and also an editable power point with the following pages:
- cover page
- student direction sheet to hand out with list of terms to find (editable)
- rubric (editable)
- 3 pages of assorted photos of sample student projects
* 7 pages total including cover page
This project was a huge favorite in my middle school Geometry classes. Students really enjoyed putting these together. Some chose to do their book digitally, and some did it scrapbook-style with stickers and ribbons - lots of room for creativity! This activity would be great for integrating with technology/computer class.
