Third-graders Create Geometry Cartoon Characters

As a culmination of their geometry unit, third-graders in Yael Newman and Kim Walden’s classes created a project inspired by the book “The Greedy Triangle” by Marilyn Burns, which they read to their classes . “Students then practiced measurement and perimeter as they drew triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, and hexagon cartoon characters,” Newman said. “Each character was given an alliterative name!”
