The Wheels on the Bus Go 'Round and 'Round: An Exploration of Shapes

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?

Description

Class Experience

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.
