Ms. Woosley's second grade students found a unique way to learn geometric vocabulary. They were given an assessment that was essentially a set of riddles. Students had to figure out what shape was being identified in the riddle based on the specific vocabulary used. They then had to find that shape somewhere in the classroom. The student's then used the iPads and an app called PixnTell to take a picture of the shape and record themselves describing the shape using relevant vocabulary words. The kids did a great job with it and it made learning fun!
Here is an example of a completed project.
