Yesterday we had our annual gumdrop platonic solid activity.
Today we used KNEX to model points, lines, rays, line segments, acute angles, right angle, and obtuse angles.
Part one of the work is to create the items on the cards.
Part two is to place the obtuse and acute angles where they “fit” in relation to the right angle.
These could be made with gumdrops and toothpicks as well, but I wanted a work task for our shelves that wouldn’t be eaten in a day. If you don’t have knex handy, toothpicks and clay should work just as well.
