5th and 6th grades Math Project is embellishing the blacktop with giant geometric shapes

By Bénédicte Brouder

In September, Mr. Moncelet (5th grade) and Mr. Giot (6th grade) decided to embark on a fun and innovative project that would give students opportunity to work together on their geometrical skills.

After a few workshops on Math class time, students were ready to apply their skills to the drawing of giant geometric shapes on the blacktop. On Monday November 13 and Tuesday November 14, the two groups (6B/5B on Monday and 6A/5A on Tuesday) were tracing giant 2-meter diameter shapes on the blacktop, using chalk and ropes for measurement.

The next exciting event in the project will occur in two weeks with the design of 10-meter diameter shapes. This time, students will use the sands of Pacific Beach and La Jolla Shores as their playground. Come support them, please!
