Fourth Graders at GES Practice Some Sticky Math!

Three fourth grade girls, two sitting and one standing near a round blue table, are working on a project with toothpicks, marshmallows and a project sheet. They are constructing shapes to match the instructions.Students in Mrs. Belcher's fourth grade math class are reviewing straight figures, polygons, and 3-D shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks! Each marshmallow represents a vertex point and each toothpick represents an edge.

Students worked together in small groups to construct parallel line segments, perpendicular segments, angles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, octagons, nonagons, decagons, cubes, pyramids, and prisms. Each group presented the collections constructed and described each creation. Students have also learned many geometry songs and created a polygon video (to a familiar Taylor Swift song) and an Angle Rap. If you come to our classroom, you can also enjoy "Rockin' the Standards" parallel and perpendicular tune and our favorite.....Right, Acute, Obtuse (to the tune YMCA!)  Remember, the best angle in math is the "TRY"angle!
