If one looks closely around a primary classroom, one can see many geometrical shapes – especially when the children are playing with the structures!

Not only do the children create patterns on the carpet with the shapes available to them, but they also build structures that have the lines one would expect when thinking of the term geometry:

Behind their creations, one can see the geometrical lines of the shelving and boxes that contain the structures that are used to build their creations:

Geometrical shapes are not only found on the carpet while the children are building. Geometry can be seen as well when looking at the baskets that contain their day’s activities:

Each day I see these geometrical lines, as do the students in my class. We have become accustomed to them and are aware of them as a seperate entity only when we study shapes in Mathematics.

What geometrical shapes are a part of your everyday life?

(This post was inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge posted at The Daily Post at WordPress.com. This week’s prompt is: Geometry)

I’m not sure which, but I AM sure my day will be invaded by tons of geometry. Great post. Brings back memories.
