We are also learning about Trapezoids this week (along with the 5 Senses that we're doing this month). As I was thinking about how to make learning about Trapezoids fun for today I stumbled across this great idea on pinterest:
To start out the project I introduced trapezoids; we talked about the shape, what it looks like, how it is different from other shapes we have talked about. Then we did a shape sort with trapezoids, squares, circles, rectangles, and triangles.
Next, I showed them some other modern art that uses shapes to create an image or design.
Then, I had the kids color it with pastels and I lamanated them for the wall! They looked amazing!
