We have been having fun creating Geometry accessories! Anything we can wear and have fun with as we repeat the geometry formulas.
This week we were studying the area of a circle… so we made watches! The kids would walk around the room pretending they were walking at the park. I would “run” into them and ask: Hey! Do you know the area of a circle? (like somebody asks you what time it is) and they would answer: Sure! (looking at their watches) The area of a circle is…
They LOVED playing that pretend game. They wanted to do it over and over again. Try it out with your kids and have them wear the watches for a few days. Ask them every so often to tell you the area of a circle, and before you know it, they’ll be able to recite it without even looking at the watch. 🙂
Print the file on card stock for more durability. I also recommend to laminate them if you have access to it because the paper tears off easily (I learned this the hard way). I ended up laminating a second set of watches and they worked much better.
