Lesson Plans
1. Basic Shapes (Southwest Educational Development Laboratory)
Provides a lesson on how much material each geometric shape can hold. "Most children will come to this activity with memories of filling containers with water, sand, dirt, or objects. Although they may not hold a sophisticated understanding of volume and surface area, their experiences will provide a learning base." 7-04

2. Constructivism and Geometry (Southwest Educational Development Laboratory)
"Geometry is an orderly way to describe and represent our inherently geometric world. Basic to the understanding of geometry is the development of spatial sense-an intuitive feel for our surroundings and the objects in them. Spatial capabilities appear early in life, and tapping into these strengths can foster an interest in mathematics. Children who develop a strong sense of spatial relationships and master the concepts of geometry are better prepared to learn number and measurement ideas as well as other advanced mathematical topics." 7-04
