The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns is the best way to open a Unit on Geometry. This craftivity takes the lively story of a triangle who wants it all and connects it to an opinion writing piece. Students will identify the different places that shapes appear in our everyday world. By doing this they will become familiar with the characteristics of the different shapes.
This fits perfectly with a writing connection where students write their opinion and explore the reasons why it would be best to be a ____.
The adorable craft will make your class smile as well as brighten any hallway or classroom.
9 shape posters (to be used as tracers for craft or displayed in the classroom): rectangle, square, circle, triangle, hexagon, octagon, pentagon, diamond, and oval.
2 differentiated writing templates.
Directions and photo examples of the completed craft
I hope you enjoy!
