Pipe-Cleaner Geometry

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: September 15, 2001

Make a set of geometry terms on 3x5 cards beforehand. Pair up the students and give each person their own pipe-cleaner. While one person puts their head down, show the other partner a geometry term on the card. Cover the card and then say "go." All heads are now up and the student who saw the term quickly tries to create the term by bending their pipecleaner into that shape or vocabulary word. It's nice to have pipe-cleaners ready to pass out when there is a few extra minutes to fill before recess, going home, etc.
