    Geometry

    Use twizzlers licorice sticks to teach parallel and perpendicular lines. You can also use them to teach angles. Give some to the kids so they can form their own. Another idea which might be a little messy is to use the small pretzel sticks and icing in the small tubs. Glue (ice) the sticks together to form obtuse, acute, and right angles. Or, have the kids lie on the floor making those angles and lines. I teach LD students and they remember best if they do concrete things with the geometry concepts. They seem to have fun and remember better using these activities in my classroom. Have fun. -Janne
