Sing and have fun as we explore geometric shapes on a bus ride through town: The wheels on the bus are round like a circle... What shape are the windows? The windows are rectangles... What shape is the stop sign?

The wheels on the bus go round and round creating a circular shape as we travel through the town. But what other shapes can we find? On our bus ride, we will encounter coins, wheels, windows, briefcases, moving boxes, street signs and more. We will sing together and learn new verses to this favorite song, pausing frequently to talk about the shapes we see on our bus ride, identify the shapes by name, describe the characteristics of these shapes and compare the shapes to each other. We will...
Students will explore real-life representations of two-dimensional plane figures (e.g., circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, ellipse, octagon). Students will encounter three-dimensional solids but the instructor will use informal language to relate those shapes to common two-dimensional shapes. For example, mathematicians use the word ‘torus’ to describe the three-dimensional shape of the tires on a real-life bus but it’s easier for younger students to look at the side of the tire and see the outlined shape of a circle.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
