M2 Learning Log 3 – Flicker Slideshow

June 27, 2011 at 4:35 pm Leave a comment

I created the set ‘Where in the world is Geometry.”  With the Common Core slowly being released, this could fit into several standards depending on the elementary age level you are working in.  Within the Common Core, you could focus on the Geometry domain from K up to possibly 5th; here a lot of the objectives are to identify and classify using properties/characteristics.   This slideshow could be used to show students how geometry is used and displayed in every day life.  Properties could be discussed and noted into the photos, or students could leave comments about what they see.  Click ‘Show info’ to view sample questions for each photo. Students could also be given the assignment to take some of their own photos to share with the class in their own sets or as a class group, etc.  In grades 3-4, you could also look under the Measurement and Date domain, under the Geometric Measurement standard; here students will have to recognize the geometric properties in order to perform the correct calculations and explain why their answers make sense. Some of these photos could be used in various word problems by simply noting a dimension or angle measurement.  As a teacher I could post these problems, or students could interact by writing their own problems (showing they understand the connection between properties/procedures) for other students to solve; as well as posting their own photos with accompanying problems.
