Tracing Giant Geometric Shapes at the Beach: 5th/6th graders Math Project

By Bénédicte Brouder

This project has been running for several weeks. Carefully crafted by Nicolas Giot (MS Math teacher) and Julien Moncelet (5th grade French teacher), the project involved several collaborative classes (5th + 6th graders together) in class, in order to work on the geometric knowledge. Then came the opportunities to apply it: first, a small scale (in class, paper) – a medium scale (on the blacktop, 2 meter diameter shapes – refer to the last ECHO for the video taken with a drone) – a large scale (on the sands of Pacific Beach on Dec 4 5B/6B – on Dec 12 5A/6A) with 10 meter diameter shapes.

Here are the 5B/6B on December 4th, 2017 at Pacific Beach!
