Here is a complete, “ready to use” book of geometry lessons designed for primary students by two experienced teachers.
and Debbie worked closely together for years and often designed
programs which would allow the students in their two classes to meet
together for shared experiences.
decided to teach geometry using a station approach. Each station
featured a different “hands on” activity and each was supervised by a
“junior teacher” from a higher grade.
book describes each station in detail, including materials needed and
instructions for the station leader. Especially- designed worksheets are
included for each station.
authors explain the organization of the program and provide forms that
make the set up easy for teachers. Special pre- and post-tests help
with student assessment, and there is a form for student
self-assessment to use when the study is complete.
of the activities at the centres have been “kid tested” in the
classroom. Teachers can use them as stand-alone class lessons if they
do not wish to use the station approach.
