Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Mission Specialists - Geometric Shapes

TO: Mission Specialists

FROM: Commander Stuart

DATE: February 1, 2007

RE: Mission #MAC 221 – Two Dimensional Figures (Similar v. Congruent)


Dear Mission Specialists:

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help Brosden, Bella and Sofia successfully get out of the Tomb of Curses and Traps. They’ve been given a scroll with the following on it:

This tomb is protected
With curses and traps

Geometric
figures
Are your only map

Step with care
If you dare

Of
similar shapes
Be very aware

The floor will hold
Only those
smart and bold

Avoid congruent shapes
And your path will be gold


Help the kids get out of the tomb safely! Create what the floor of the tomb might look like on a large scroll of paper.

1. Be sure to create a path of similar figures from beginning to end.
2. Use as many different shapes as you can.
3. Fill up the entire paper. Remember, it is the tomb floor.

You have until 12:30 p.m. today to finish. Challenges will then be held with others group members to safely negotiate your tomb floor. At 12:45 you will be given a written test to assess your knowledge of two-dimensional shapes.

So good luck and remember, the kids lives depend on you!

    I like the way you are getting your students envolved. Making them think for themselves and to see if they really understand what
    you have taught.
