Picking Apart Geometry

Submitted by: Joni Studebaker
From: Forrest, IL
Date Submitted: December 01, 2005

I use this activity to reinforce edges and verices when teaching geometry to my 5th grade class. Pick up several boxes of wooden tooth picks and a bag of miniture mashmellows. Students construct different geomatric shapes using tooth picks as the edges and marshmellows as vertices. They count the tooth picks and then marshmellows. Later when we move to the more abstract I'll remind them to count the tooth picks or how many marshmellows did we use? Plus they get to eat the marshmellows when we're done!
