First Grade Learned Geometry With Marshmallows!


By Zoe Pursel, Staff Reporter

The first grade teachers wanted the first graders to learn geometry by using their hands and not only textbooks.  They went to the Imagination Station and used marshmallows and toothpicks to create the objects. The toothpicks were used as the sides of the shape and the marshmallows were used as the corners. While they were making the hexagon one of the first graders made a decagon instead which was really cool. When they were done making their shape they wrote a writing response on  their favorite shape. For example, Trey Byfield made a lot of shapes and his favorite one to make was the hexagon. All  the first graders even made a cube. This was such a fun way to learn!
