    After reading the book mentioned in the other post, why not take your students on a Geometry Walk around your building? Take a pad of post its and each time a student sees something that looks like a familiar shape, write it on a post it note. When you get back you can make a bar graph of these items. You can add to it as children think of other things they saw or use every day.

    You can also take a digital camera along on your walk and take pictures of various children standing in front of, behind, next to, to the right, to the left... of each item they see. Then you can make a class book about your Geometry walk and put sentences on each page. Example: Susie is standing to the left of the flag. The flag is a rectangle.

    You can make the book fill in the blank to make it more interactive.

    We have done both of these activities with first and second graders and they loved it. Also helps kids look at the environment more carefully.
