In the Classroom: Monster Geometry

Anne Phillips provided students with various pre-cut circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares in multiple colors and sizes to make a monster mash geometry lesson.  Students were given full sheets of colored paper and scissors to create their own monster shapes, and Anne showed them how changing the shape, position, and direction of their “monster eyes” changed the monster’s expression from happy to angry to silly.  They did the same exercise with shapes for the mouth.  Students were encouraged to get as creative as they wanted by adding hair, eye brows, ears, horns, eye lashes, etc.  Students were also given strips of paper and instructed how to make arms and legs using accordion folding techniques.
